Gov. Jerry Brown's sweeping reorganization of California state government is expected to become law Tuesday. It will be the largest reshuffling of state agencies, boards and commissions in recent state history.
The plan does not include significant cost savings, but the Brown administration hopes the housecleaning will save money down the road by increasing efficiency.
Carole D'Elia of the Little Hoover Commission said the overhaul represents the most ambitious of the 36 reorganizations the commission has vetted since 1968.
Brown proposed the overhaul in March and the Legislature's deadline for rejecting is Monday.
Among other things, the plan reduces the number of agencies from 12 to 10 and groups similar governmental bodies together.
For example, Caltrans will be grouped with other transportation departments instead of with managed health care.
