Heritage impacts State Department restructure

A Politico piece this week described the influence a Heritage report is having in Donald Trump’s plans to restructure the state department.

Conversations with more than a dozen people in and outside of State who are involved in or monitoring the administration’s plans suggest some broad outlines are emerging about State’s future, including from proposed budget cuts accepted by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and from a 2016 Heritage Foundation report that laid out some dramatic ways to reshape the department.

Various stakeholders nearly all mentioned the 2016 report by the Heritage Foundation’s Brett Schaefer. A former senior State Department official said Trump transition aides were “enamored” of the report and took it into meetings.

You are making this impact possible.

You can read the full Heritage report to see what changes should be made in the State Department.

Do you believe President Trump is doing a good job restructuring federal agencies to make them more streamlined and cost-effective? Why or why not?
