A co-chairman of the Missouri State Government Review Commission hopes the commission’s report sparks discussion among lawmakers about the efficiency of state government. Warren Erdman, a business executive from Kansas City, acknowledges this report contains no sweeping changes like the last such commission report that recommended the current state government structure – paring down more than 100 departments to 12, for instance. Erdman says the main thrust of the report is a call for state departments and agencies to focus on mission, instead of process. Erdman says he’s proud of the report that condensed what the commission discovered in 59 meetings, which included the testimony of more than 230 Missourians at 12 public hearings. The commission has offered 84 recommendations in its 30 page report delivered to Governor Matt Blunt.
