§101. Purpose and findings

A. The state of Louisiana faces a severe decline in revenues through fiscal year 2012 which, if no corrective action is taken, will leave a significant funding gap in state government expenditures and will create serious sustainability issues in the financing of state obligations.

B. It is essential that the state act now to reduce the cost of state government, through all means available, including efficiencies, economies, greater effectiveness, and other means to streamline government in order to overcome the projected severe revenue reductions occurring through 2012 and to ensure that available state tax dollars are being spent efficiently and effectively. Many state agencies were created over thirty years ago and a review of each agency and its activities, functions, programs, and services is needed to determine whether the purpose served by the agency or activity, function, program, or service continues to be relevant.

Acts 2009, No. 491, §1, eff. July 10, 2009; Acts 2010, No. 861, §10.
