Senators push Commissioner Bush for more transparency in progress on The Alamo restoration
There's bipartisan concern about Bush’s complicated plan of interlocking partnerships that aren’t always subject to open records and open meetings requirements
Members of Senate Finance appeared ready this
afternoon to take a more direct hands-on role to deliver a simpler, more
transparent plan for transforming The Alamo.
The General Land Office has been caretaker of
Texas’ most famous shrine since 2011, when lawmakers moved to phase out the
management of the Daughters of the Texas Revolution. Over the
last two sessions, lawmakers have dedicated $100 million to jumpstart a master plan and begin deferred maintenance on the historic structure.
So far, response to Land Commissioner George P Bush’s
efforts have been mixed.
