​ Speaker Straus Names Rep. Gonzales as Sunset Chair

Austin – Texas House Speaker Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) on Monday named Rep. Larry Gonzales as Chairman of the prestigious Sunset Advisory Commission.
 
“I am honored Speaker Straus has asked me to lead the Sunset Commission discussions in preparation of the 85th Legislative Session,” said Chairman Gonzales. “I look forward to working with my colleagues from both chambers in the coming months, ensuring these agencies meet their mission effectively and efficiently.”
 
The current Sunset Review cycle is comprised of 24 state agencies, including the Texas Department of Transportation, the Railroad Commission, and the Texas Medical Board.
 
“These appointees have a very important job,” Speaker Straus said. “I am confident that their review and recommendations will help state agencies serve taxpayers better. Their work will also help the House continue to make state government more transparent and efficient.”
 
The Sunset process is the regular assessment of the continuing need for a state agency or program to exist.  While standard legislative oversight is concerned with agency compliance with legislative policies, Sunset starts with a more basic question: Do the agency’s functions continue to be needed? Sunset  has  always  been  about  more  than  just  limiting  the  size  of government.  The process creates a unique opportunity and powerful incentive for the Legislature and stakeholders to look closely at each agency and make key improvements to how state government works.
 
“As the Subcommittee Chairman for the House Appropriations Committee which writes the budgets for most of the agencies up for Sunset review this cycle, I have a unique perspective and opportunity to ensure the state of Texas operates in a manner which reinforces our commitment to service, while balancing our fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers of Texas,” said Chairman Gonzales.
 
Chairman Gonzales is serving his third term in the Texas House of Representatives representing House District 52, which is comprised of the cities of Round Rock, Hutto, Taylor, and parts of Georgetown.       
 
                                                                                        ###
