My friend, there are at least a thousand Boards, Commissions, Directories and Committies that could be done away with. Most, well some anyway are the same as the Federals. I can name two right now, CALIFORNIA COASTAL COMMISSION, CAL-OSHA. (Sorry for the rant). If someone could just come up with the total cost of each of these items and present them then we all could see where the cuts should be made.
Semper Fi, and the very best to you and yours.

100% on point. Boards, Commissions, Committees are the vehicles of choice for Socialism

Actually, someone submitted a bill to limit the pay for the members of all of those useless boards to just the hours actually worked. Of course, most of those board members are either termed-out legislators or their family members. So the brave souls in the Assembly Appropriations Committee have shelved the bill. This accomplishes two things - one, the board members still get their $100k salaries for meeting once a month and two, no one in the legislature actually has to be seen voting to continue this wasteful practice. Some great courage they have...
