SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown has made 26 appointments as part of his reorganization of state government, which takes full effect this week.
Brown issued the announcement Monday evening, the first day of the consolidation. The appointments were for mid-level bureaucrats making between $45,000 and $150,120 a year. Of those, 19 will make more than $100,000.
None of the appointees is new to the administration. They either were promoted or received similar titles at their new departments.
It was not immediately clear whether any received raises.
Brown appointed three new agency secretaries last week as the state prepared to reduce the number of agencies from 12 to 10, with departments that have related functions housed together.
The governor has said the changes will streamline government and could save money in the future.
