Former Governor Mitch Daniels was a strong advocate for lean and effective government, and he felt there were opportunities to not only reduce the cost of government, but to increase the quality of services provided. He spearheaded the creation of the Indiana Commission on Local Government Reform, charging it with determining if Indiana’s patchwork of local government delivers the most effective services at the lowest possible expense.
