Governor Lamont announces efforts to reduce bureaucracy in state government


The Governor’s new Commissioner of the State Department of Administrative Services is calling for the reduction of what he said was “administrivia.”

To make the point on Tuesday, the Governor and Commissioner Josh Gaballe toured Infoshred in East Windsor.

‘Infoshred’ has the contract to shred confidential documents from the state like old paper tax forms.

“Of the 10,000 different transactions we have, you the citizens have with our government, almost all of them are paper. Over time, Josh is moving all that online,” Gov. Ned Lamont explained.

“There are definitely things that we can do to make that procurement operation more efficient and to subject business owners who want to do business with us to less administrivia and red tape and bureaucracy,” Geballe said.

The Governor is urging residents to suggest ways to cut state government red tape by submitting suggestions via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn by using the hashtag #cutredtapeCT.
