These new duties gave the Bureau the responsibility of working with other state departments, bureaus, and agencies, helping them to study their development plans and increase efficiency in performing their functions. The Bureau would also give planning advice and assistance to committees of the General Assembly, local governments and other public bodies, including multi state planning commissions created by Congress.
