MONTGOMERY, Ala. – On Wednesday, Governor Kay Ivey signed Executive Order 3 dissolved 20 “committees, commissions, councils, task forces, and other such entities” established through 18 Bentley administration Executive Orders.

“I will work closely with members of the legislature in the days ahead to address the very important issues facing our state,” the Governor added. “Since the first day I took office, I have been committed to efficiency in government, cutting bureaucratic red-tape, and saving tax-payer resources; removing these groups, many of which have either completed their work or have become inactive, is just a part of that process.”
