We ask state government to provide education, health, safety, transportation and a host of other goods and services. Often, government is the sole provider or purchaser of goods and services. As such, getting government right is important. When government works, children thrive, our communities are safer, and people can be secure in their business dealings. When it fails, the results can be catastrophic for families, communities, and the environment.
The General Assembly’s Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations holds government programs and agencies accountable and ensures that tax dollars are utilized in an efficient and effective manner. The Commission seeks to measure actual outcomes of government programs and ensure programs accomplish the goals they intended to achieve.
