Sunset Commission issues final results of agency reviews

Roughly 80 percent of 252 recommendations were passed across 17 bills in the regular session

Even though lawmakers failed to pass an overhaul of the Texas Medical Board during the recent session, they did put away the seemingly never-ending review of the Texas Department of Transportation and devoted significant cross-agency efforts to curb prescription drug abuse.

The Sunset Commission’s final report on this cycle of recommendations suggested almost $6 million in savings over the next five years from the actions taken by lawmakers in the most recent session.
