Update: Indiana Commission on Local Government report

Gov. Kernan and Chief Justice Shepard to present Commission's recommendations via live Webcast at 10:30 a.m EST., in Evansville at 11 a.m. CST

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dec. 11, 2007

INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Governor Joe Kernan and Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard, co-chairs of the Indiana Commission on Local Government Reform, are holding news conferences today to present the Commission's report "Streamlining Local Government: We've got to stop governing like this."

Developed with assistance from the Indiana University Center for Urban Policy and the Environment, the report recommends steps to make Indiana's local government more efficient, effective, understandable and accountable.

Due to inclement weather in the state's northern counties, Governor Kernan and Chief Justice Shepard will hold a live Webcast at 10:30 a.m. (EST) to present the Commission's report. The Webcast can be accessed at http://indianalocalgovreform.iu.edu. During the live Webcast, you may e-mail questions to iumdp@iupui.edu. To view the Webcast, your computer must have Windows Media Player.

Following the Webcast, Kernan and Shepard will travel to Evansville for a live news conference at 11 a.m. (CST), to be held at the Evansville Regional Airport in the Airport Authority Administration board room.

Electronic copies of the report have been distributed via e-mail and are posted on the Commission Web site, http://indianalocalgovreform.iu.edu.

In July 2007, Governor Mitch Daniels formed the bipartisan Indiana Commission on Local Government Reform and named former Governor Joe Kernan and Chief Justice Randall Shepard as its co-chairs. The Indiana University Center for Urban Policy and the Environment staffs the Commission.
