The National Legislative Program Evaluation Society awarded the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission a Certificate of Impact for 2014. The group recognized the commission demonstrating “significant impact on state government.”
The group is part of the 40-year-old National Conference of State Legislatures, which provides support to state legislatures.
State Sen. Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, is chairwoman of the 12-member state commission that includes 10 legislators and two appointees.
Since its inception in 1977, the sunset process has regularly reviewed state agencies, streamlining and making changes to government that help save tax dollars.
