Excerpt from The Movement for the Reorganization of State Administration
In order to adjust a form of government planned for the more primitive conditions of many years ago, so as to per form the multitudinous functions which have devolved upon state governments, it has been found necessary to establish numerous boards, bureaus, commissions, and commissioners. Owing to the fact that these boards and bureaus were cre ated one at a time, as occasion arose, and were constituted as independent agencies with specially designated powers, state administration has lacked in the necessary unity and correlation to secure economical and efficient public service. The organization of state administration contains today little evidence of unified design or systematic planning. It consists of a complicated mass of separate and disjointed authorities, operating with little reference to each other or to any central control.1 Lack of unity and of correlation in the arrangements for state administration has led to dis satisfaction and criticisms which have resulted in a signifi cant movement for the reform of state administration.
