GOVERNMENT EFFICIENCY: A big state carpool was on hand for the governor's announcement of the newly efficient operation of War Memorial Stadium by the Parks and Tourism Department.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson
today signed bills that he touted as efficiency
The bills moved the War Memorial Stadium Commission
under the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism
, the Energy Office
to the Department of Environmental Quality
and the Office of Health Information Technology
to the Health Department.
What these moves will produce in terms of comparable operation for the same or less money remains to be seen. The state has slashed the budget of the stadium in half, to name one.
An attendee noted that the ceremonial bill signing at the stadium required attendance of about 14 vehicles owned by the state Parks and Tourism Department.
AT THE CEREMONY: Many hands on deck.
