Ind. Gov't. - "Randall Shepard, a Republican, and former Lt. Gov. Kathy Davis, a Democrat, to co-lead second look at local governments"

Dan Carden of the NWI Times has the story here. Some quotes:

In partnership with the Indiana University Public Policy Institute, Shepard and Davis will oversee three commissions evaluating issues affecting Indiana's urban communities, suburban and medium-sized communities and rural communities.

Among the topics to be considered are workforce development and education; sustainability and the environment; infrastructure; health, arts, amenities and recreation; and local government finance. * * *

The work will culminate in a gubernatorial forum on local government innovation in August 2016. * * *

It is similar to the largely unrealized recommendations of the 2007 Kernan-Shepard Report that identified 27 state policy changes needed to modernize the 19th Century structure of Indiana's many local governments.
