RALEIGH, North Carolina — Some North Carolina lawmakers sound underwhelmed by the latest broad examination of state government they paid Gov. Pat McCrory's administration and consultants to perform.

The top manager of the North Carolina Government Efficiency and Reform program addressed the legislature's government watchdog committee Monday. The General Assembly earmarked $4 million for the project in 2013. The recommendations released in March project the state could save $71 million over the next two years and $615 million by 2025 if recommendations are carried out.

Committee co-chairman Rep. Craig Horn of Union County told manager Joe Coletti that panel members had expected more from his report, such as recommendations on restructuring government agencies and funding formulas.

Coletti says the program's work uncovered fundamental problems about how government worked that needed to be addressed first.
