Local governments face serious challenges when trying to balance their budgets during complex financial times. This difficulty is exacerbated when the state places burdensome mandates on localities. This task force identified mandates imposed on localities that are overly burdensome or unnecessary and recommended appropriate changes, providing relief to local governments.
In 2011, the General Assembly approved legislation to create this task force, which consisted of five members who served at the pleasure of the Governor. The legislation specifically charged the task force “to review state mandates imposed on localities and to recommend temporary suspension or permanent repeal of such mandates, or any other action as appropriate.”
