Thursday, January 23, 2014

State Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today announced that he has been appointed as a member of the Milton Marks “Little Hoover Commission” on California State Government Organization and Economy by the Senate Rules Committee.

“One of my primary focuses in the Senate has been to root out inefficiencies and improve transparency. I am honored to be able to serve on the Little Hoover Commission. Their work over the past 50 years has been a great asset to California,” said Cannella. “I am looking forward to continuing that work, improving the way state government operates.”

The Commission was created in 1962 and is an independent state oversight agency. Formally known as the Milton Marks “Little Hoover” Commission on California State Government Organization and Economy, their mission is to investigate state government operations and promote efficiency, economy and improved service through reports, recommendations and legislative proposals.

The Commission is a balanced bipartisan board composed of five citizen members appointed by the Governor, four citizen members appointed by the Legislature, two Senators and two Assembly Members. Cannella fills the vacancy left by Senator Bill Emmerson.
