Perhaps it’s less about eliminating unecessary agencies, and more about eliminating or reducing unecessary work (including duplication of work). I’d even suggest that this be considered across federal, state, and local jurisdictions. If we can find ways to coax stakeholders into letting go of he need to own certain work, we can free capacity for more critical needs. I see a lot of wasted duplication of effort in permitting and compliance efforts across jurisdictions, which could otherwise redirected to education and development of better technologies and business practices.
