Name: Commission for Economic Development - RG 319


Historical Note:

The Commission for Economic Development was created in 1967 to review the activities of and advise the Department of Business and Economic Development; consider programs to further the state's economic development; study the laws and programs of other states as they relate to economic development; confer with government officials, representatives of business and industry, and other persons or associations interested in promoting economic development; and report findings and recommendations to the General Assembly. It was composed of five members of the House and five members of the Senate appointed respectively by the Speaker and the president pro tempore, and seven members from business and industry appointed by the Governor (L. 1967, pp. 4228-4229). The commission was abolished by the General Assembly in 1985 (P.A. 83-1257, p. 1170). Its responsibilities were assumed by the Citizens Council on Economic Development which was within the newly created Citizens Assembly (P.A. 84-15, pp. 302-303).

For an administrative history of the CITIZENS ASSEMBLY see RG 624.000.
