Using Recognized Methods and Techniques – Part II

From the Commissioner - April 2019

Even without a legislative session, April is always a very busy month. So this year, that is especially true with our agency focused on the final steps of the Sunset review process as well.  We greatly appreciate the anticipated improvements this process will bring to the services we provide to the people of Texas and the license holders we also serve. It has always been this agency’s policy to partner with our license holders in order to better serve their clients, the ultimate objective of both the profession itself and our regulatory efforts.

So far, 2019 has offered Texas both very cold and very mild conditions – a bit unpredictable as this new year advances.  Perhaps this corresponds to the unexpected combination of elements at work as the legislative session gets underway?  New leadership in the House has opened up new possibilities for cooperation on advancing public policy issues – a situation we welcome and look forward to as the Sunset process holds the promise of developing new guidance on matters of concern to our agency.   

From the Chair - December 2018

The Board met on Friday November 16th at the Agency’s HQ.  We heard progress reports from all of our Committee Chairs and from the Commissioner and agency Division Directors.  It was a very productive meeting and enormously helpful in clarifying some specific policy expectations.
