Charges
• Study ways to advance preservation, dissemination and promotion of Texas history.
• Review the opportunities for Texas and Mexican legislative and executive offcials to share information in a timely manner on border developments significantly affecting the other side of the border (the construction of the Carbon II lignite plant in Mexico is cited as an example). Recommend mechanisms to achieve appropriate levels of information and coordination on such developments.
• Conduct active oversight of agencies under the committee's jurisdiction, including a study of mandated reports to the legislature and legislative agencies. The study should consist of a review of the legislative reporting requirements of all agencies to identify areas where reporting obligations could be streamlined and agency accountability improved. The committee shall make specific recommendations about the continuation, modification or elimination of required legislative reports.
