Scope and Content

This series contains letters, reports and other correspondence conducted by the so-called Committee of Nine, formed as a joint legislative committee to review the efficiency of state and local government, and public utilities.

Similar wording appears in subsequent laws concerning the committee in August 1933 and 1935.
