Growth Chair

PolA Author: 
Rick Matkin, Caldwell
PolA Date: 
Thursday, June 16, 2016
PolA Rationale: 

The three committees being recommended for blending or unification all require leadership capable of possessing very similar skill sets. The three committees are required, within the text in existence, to work closely and support one another. To unify those efforts under one Chairperson would eliminate the need for further bureaucratic communications and solidify the efforts under one Chair who is directly accountable to the Governor.
