PINEHURST, NC (AP) – Gov. Bev Perdue is ready to explain how she wants North Carolina state government reorganized in the second half of her four-year term. Perdue plans to announce her proposals to Sandhills business leaders Thursday afternoon in Pinehurst.

The Democratic governor has been talking for months about how to make government more efficient and eliminate waste and duplicative functions.

The last state government reorganization occurred in 1996. The last significant attempt to consolidate government departments failed in 1995 when Republicans balked at Gov. Jim Hunt’s proposal to eliminate the Department of Crime Control and Public Safety.

A governor can make some changes without legislative approval.
