The Role of the Sunset Commission

Regular assessment and oversight of government processes and agency operations are necessary for responsible government. Transparency and accountability are two things that we not only expect from our government, but we must also demand.

To identify areas for government improvement, the Texas Legislature created the Sunset Advisory Commission. The 12-member Sunset Commission evaluates ways to eliminate waste, duplication and inefficiencies in state agencies and considers new ways to improve an agency's operations.

Update from Four Price

When it comes to protecting the well-being of all Texans, my colleagues in the Texas House of Representatives continue to support legislation to improve our state’s security measures by addressing the bipartisan issue of public safety.

Last week, the House unanimously passed three bills that I authored, all aimed at strengthening the state’s ability to keep Texans safer.

"I voted for the continuation of the Texas Lottery Commission to advance the good work of the Sunset Committee.

While I am no proponent of gambling and gaming, I am not a proponent of running roughshod over the will of the voters and our constitutional amendments.
