Commission on Local Government - RG 587 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Commission on Local Government - RG 587


Historical Note: The Commission on Local Government was created by the General Assembly in 1967 to survey the entire structure of local governments; study all laws governing the organization, powers, jurisdiction, and function of local governments; study the inter-relationships of local governments to each other and to the federal and state governments; and formulate recommendations for legislation or constitutional amendments to permit effective management of local affairs, encourage local policy decision making, reduce the multiplicity of local governments, eliminate duplicating unnecessary powers, increase efficiency and economy in local governments, allow optional forms of local governments, and increase their authority for cooperation among the levels of government. It was composed of five members of the Senate appointed by the Committee on Committees, five members of the House appointed by the Speaker, and five public members appointed by the Governor. It was to make its final report to the General Assembly by March 1, 1969 at which time it was to expire (L. 1967, pp. 4138-4139).
