2. Crisis Management Team: The team be headed by the Governor's Chief Fiscal Advisor and will address crises as they come up in the government and usually arise from a lack of resources. These normally include health and safety emergencies that occur suddenly in public schools or the hospital.

"There are problems that come up every day that need attention. I want this administration to be able to address these problems without taking our focus off the implementation of our vision outlined in Blueprint 2020."
