McDonnell Asks Commission for Government Reform Ideas

June 7, 2010

Gov. Bob McDonnell is asking the commission he formed to streamline government to come up with big and bold ideas.

He's also telling Democrats upset with his pick to lead the group to "get out of the way" of reform.

McDonnell told the 31-member commission Friday to look for ways to make government run better and cheaper. He asked for an initial set of recommendations on privatizing the state's liquor stores and other issues by Aug. 28.

After his remarks, McDonnell told reporters he had full confidence in commission leader Fred Malek. Malek has come under fire for his work in President Richard Nixon's administration to compile a list of Jews working in the administration.

Malek has said he made a mistake when he compiled the list.
