The Boards and Commissions Task Force co-chaired by Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson delivered its final report to Governor Eric Greitens on Oct. 31, and recommends nearly 450 eliminations and consolidations to Missouri’s boards and commissions.

“The Task Force has done a terrific job of recommending needed change to our state’s 200+ boards and commissions, and conducted itself in a professional manner throughout the process” said Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson.

“I want to thank co-chair Scott Turk and extend a special thank you to Heidi Kolkmeyer and Bill Bellomy for their work, as well task force members Mr. John Ghirardelli, Mr. David Moore, Mrs. Peggy Striler and Mr. Ben Shantz, Senator Jacob Hummel, Senator Jeanie Riddle, Representative Gretchen Bangert, Representative Robert Ross, and Representative Jared Taylor for their willingness to put in a great deal of time and effort to streamline our state government," he said.

"I appreciate Governor Greitens giving me the opportunity to take up this task and eliminate a great deal of bureaucratic red tape.” Lt. Gov. Parson said.
