The Arkansas governor has released a proposal to consolidate 42 state agencies down to 15 in an effort to "allow for increased coordination within similar programs, . . . improved management control,. . . and more support and accountability" to the boards. The state Department of Finance and Administration has estimated annual savings of $15 million beginning in fiscal year 2021. Health-related regulatory boards would be placed in the Department of Health. Other occupational and professional licensing commissions and boards would merge into a newly created Department of Labor and Licensing. The proposal indicates that boards would maintain their supervisory licensing authority and that their special revenues would stay in place.
