S.180 – DDSN Commission Turned into Advisory Board, Director Appointed by Governor

S.180 turns the Commission on Disabilities and Special Needs into an advisory board rather than the governing body of the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs, and makes the department director a gubernatorial appointment subject to the advice and consent of the Senate. This bill also gives the Governor the authority to remove the director at will. This would remove an unnecessary layer of bureaucracy and make the department (an executive agency) much more accountable to the Governor.
