McDonnell's government reform commission seeks suggestions from public
Gov. Bob McDonnell's government reform commission is hitting the road.
The Governor's Commission on Government Reform and Restructuring is holding a series of town hall meetings to seek input from the public on how to save Virginia money.
The first one will take place at Capitol One headquarters in McLean Thursday. Five additional meetings will take place across the state -- Newport News, Verona, Abingdon, South Hill and Virginia Beach -- by July 19. See the full list.
McDonnell has charged the commission with searching for ways to save hundreds of millions of dollars from the state budget and make government more user-friendly. The group will consider closing some of the state's 130 agencies, putting more forms online, eliminating annual reports and selling the state's 334 liquor stores.
The meetings will be attended by some of the 31 members of the commission and McDonnell's staff, but not the governor himself. McDonnell will hold his own town halls meetings later this year after the commission sends him its recommendations in late August.
