In case such competitions run as desired by decentralization mechanism, the government does not have many chances to increase its income that forcing resources allocation to fulfill goods and public services needs based on desired preferences by local people. More decentralized local governments create fewer interventions by central government in economy that the government size decreases along with wider range of effective decentralization Methodology: The research objects are all Indonesian Regency/Municipality Governments. The data have been consecutively taken from 2004 to 2014 with valid sample of 183 Provincial and Regency/Municipality Governments out of total 468 Provincial and Regency/Municipality Governments recorded in table of General Budget Calculation of 2005-2011. Results: The results show that relationship between fiscal decentralization and government size is not statistically significant, though its relationship coefficient is negative as predicted in the decentralization hypothesis, more decentralized a government creates more small government size
