Best wishes to Rep. Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, for his latest attempt to shove the state out of the way of local governments looking to consolidate. As it is, local consolidations require the Legislature’s blessing. But such efforts are difficult enough to pull off at the local level. The state shouldn’t have to sign off, too — especially when Kansas ranks fifth in the nation in per capita units of government.
