State Auditor Elaine Howle, asked by Gov. Jerry Brown for a list by today of recommendations to reduce government waste, needs a few more days to work on it, the governor's office said.
Brown spokesman Evan Westrup said this afternoon that the Bureau of State Audits will provide its list next week.
"The product is the important part here," Westrup said.
Last month, Brown asked the Little Hoover Commission and the Bureau of State Audits to provide 10 measures each that the state could take to reduce waste and inefficiencies. The Little Hoover Commission was expected to finish its work by close of business today.
