Sunset Commission Meetings

The Sunset Commission has concluded its public hearings for this review cycle. The 88th Texas Legislature is currently considering recommendations proposed by the Sunset Commission. To learn more about current Sunset bills, visit the Current Sunset Bills page.

All meetings of the Sunset Commission are open to the public. 

The Commission generally considers each agency under review during two public meetings. About a month after release of a Sunset staff report, the Commission discusses the report’s recommendations and takes testimony from the public. Any person is welcome to attend the public hearing and provide feedback on the staff recommendations or other issues relating to the agency.  Please note, however, testimony about individual cases or appeals is generally not allowed. The Sunset Commission cannot override an agency’s decisions.

At least a month after the public hearing, the Sunset Commission meets again to vote on its recommendations to the full Legislature about an agency. No additional public testimony is taken at this second meeting.
