Surely some of these assorted boards can be eliminated entirely. If required by statute, then let's get someone to run a "clean up bill" to eliminate them.

A few (pardons and parole) are essential, some are probably pretty worthwhile, but my guess is that at least half could be eliminated entirely with no adverse impact on the citizens of Utah.

Admittedly this is not a whole lot of money, but any time we can get rid of ANY bureaucracy it is a step in the right direction to restoring individual freedom and responsibility.

The more government we can push down to the local levels, as these boards are, and away from state and national governments, the better off we are as a people. These local boards are government BY the people.

The more the people can be used in their own governance, the more responsible they become.

...even if they make mistakes occasionally. Better there than in Congress!
