Why Stop With Secretary-of-State and Treasurer?

2011 Assembly Joint Resolution 26 seeks to amend the state constitution to delete the offices of Secretary of State and Treasurer. (h/t, Blue Cheddar).

While this is no doubt being presented as a way for the state to save money, since the two offices have very few constitutional duties left, it would look much less like a partisan power grab if the resolution also sought to eliminate the office of Lieutenant Governor.  What useful purpose does it serve?

I don't know that eliminating the Office of Lt.Governor is a problem for me. It does serve very little purpose, kinda like Vice President.
