I don't know if it's part of a nationwide effort to reduce the number of
councils, but Evergreen Area Council (in Washington state) narrowly escaped
being merged into Chief Seattle Council this past year. The reason cited
for the proposed takeover was a shortfall in funding. The council redoubled
its fundraising efforts, and managed to thwart the takeover attempt (for
this year, at least).
