AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) will host a “Spotlight: Transparency and Accountability in State Agencies” on Monday, October 19 at 11:30 am CDT in the Joe B. Hogsett Theater at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
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. 
This event is the first in the Foundation’s new Spotlight series, which will help the public get a closer look at the operations of state agencies, local governments, programs, and budgets in order to make government more efficient, more cost effective, and more responsive to the public.
