Letter urging the Legislature to allow to go into effect Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1969


For this study, the Commission reviewed the Governor’s Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1969, which proposed renaming the Department of Harbors & Waterways to Department of Navigation & Ocean Development and renaming the Harbors and Watercraft Commission to Navigation and Ocean Development Commission.

State law establishes that all Governors’ reorganization plans must be submitted to the Commission for review at least 30 days prior to submitting it to the Legislature for its consideration. Following its review and one or more public hearings on the proposal, the Commission offers a recommendation on whether the Legislature should allow the plan to go into effect.
