DMS 'kill bill' included in Senate budget

The bill to blow up the Department of Management Services and distribute its functions across state government is scheduled for a vote in a Senate committee this week. The bill would also blow up Sen. Carey Baker's general government budget -- but he's ready. He's got the various changes in his proposed budget in case the bill finally becomes law.

Baker said the change would save $3.1 million. It would also create a brand new state agency: the Department of Personnel Management.
