Good news: NV government getting a little smaller
It's a start.
Gov. Brian Sandoval today agreed to eliminate 18 executive branch committees, councils and advisory panels as recommended by a task force, including the clearly outdated State Year 2000 Coordinating Council, among others. ...
The 18 committees, councils, commissions and task forces Sandoval will eliminate are:
- The Nevada Interagency Council on Homelessness;
- The Strategic Plan for People with Disabilities Accountability Committee;

- Information Services Policy Committee;
- Commission on Workplace Safety and Community Protection;
- State Year 2000 Coordinating Council;
- Governor's Appeal Hearings Board for State of Nevada's Self-Funded Insurance Program;
- Silver Source Steering Committee; and
- Governor's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities.
The panels recommended to continue under new executive orders with new expiration dates and new reporting requirements are:
- The 2-1-1 Partnership;
- The Commission on Autism Spectrum Disorder;
- The Nevada Broadband Task Force;
- The Nevada Communications Steering Committee;
- The Nevada Crime Commission;
