We've written plenty over the last few weeks about Gov. Jerry Brown's proposal to reshape California's state civil service by blending the non-constitutionally-mandated functions of the State Personnel Board and the Department of Personnel Administration into a new super-HR organization.
The administration says the merger will save about $6 million by axing duplicated positions, but the Bigger Idea is to effect a cultural shift in the way the state handles current and potential employees.
What do you think? Will Brown's plan reach its lofty goal? Fall flat? Somewhere in between?
