Govt vows to get rid of provinces

Rome, July 4 - The Italian government on Thursday
vowed to get rid of provincial administrations, widely seen as
an unnecessary and expensive layer of administration.
Eliminating the provinces would leave the central government
to deal with the regions and municipalities without having to go
through the provincial level, cutting costs and red tape.
Italians voted to drop provincial governments in a recent
referendum and the Constitutional Court last month ruled it was
against Italy's Constitution to keep them.
Premier Enrico Letta's left-right government has pledged to
cut political spending in the face of widespread voter ire over
pork-barrel scandals that produced a huge protest vote in
February's general election.
Letta said Thursday the government would present a bill to
change the Constitution to remove provincial governments.
Skeptics claim the savings from the move will be less than
hoped and provincial workers will have to find jobs elsewhere in
the civil service.
