Monday, October 19, 2015

901 Congress Avenue
Transparency and accountability are two key components of good governance. Sometimes Texas state agencies get this right, sometimes there is room for improvement. This panel will discuss these issues in the context of four different agencies: the Texas General Land Office, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, the Texas Racing Commission, and the Legislative Budget Board. Specific topics will include contracting, budgeting, streamlining, and legislative oversight.
Panelists (developing lineup)
Commissioner George P. Bush, Texas General Land Office
Representative Greg Bonnen, Texas House of Representatives, District 24
Talmadge Heflin, Director of the Center for Fiscal Policy, Texas Public Policy Foundation
