Nixon wants to shift duties in 3 agencies

JEFERSON CITY (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon wants to shift the responsibilities of several state agencies.

Nixon said Monday that he had issued executive orders to transfer three duties among state agencies:

• The Center for Emergency Response and Terrorism would shift from the Department of Health and Senior Services to the Department of Public Safety.

• The Division of Energy would move from the Department of Natural Resources to the Department of Economic Development.

• The oversight duties of making sure tax credit recipients comply with state laws and regulations would be transferred from the Department of Economic Development to the Department of Revenue.

All the changes would take effect Aug. 28, unless the Legislature rejects them within 60 days of receiving the notification from Nixon.

Nixon said the restructuring is not expected to save any money but would better align duties with the existing responsibilities of state agencies.
