Consideration of the agency's legislative proposals and other related issues to be addressed during the 76th Texas legislative session. The commission may also meet in closed meeting to receive legal advice regarding these matters, or any of the above matters, as authorized by Section 551.071 of the Open Meetings Act, Chapter 551 of the Government Code. Any commission action, decision, or vote on these matters will be made in open meeting in accordance with Section 551.102 of the Open Meetings Act, Chapter 551 of the Government Code. Steve Minick (Director/IGR) presented this item. Most of the information presented is contained in the Management Report describing the previous weeks legislative activities. Virtually all of the initiatives that the commission initiated in June last year at the work session at Radian are contained in filed bills except as follows:
- One exception is the bill dealing with Superfund cost recovery and due to the lateness of the hour , probably just did not get filed.
- One or two provisions of the Business Process Review did not get reflected in current legislation, but a number of vehicles exist which could provide amendment opportunities if we choose.
- Everything else is in a bill and most are filed in both the House and the Senate.
Several hearings are scheduled for next week. No action was taken on this item.
