This legislation would allow the Texas Military Preparedness Commission, subject to approval of the governor, to hire an assistant director for the purpose of administrative duties of the commission.
The bill requires those to be considered must have "extensive experience and knowledge relating to military installation operations, the defense industry, and the United States Department of Defense, including retired senior military officers from any branch of the armed forces of the United States." and may not hold another position within the governors office.
HB 882 does not weigh against or for any the principles we consider when providing bill analysis, therefore we remain neutral.
It should be noted that the Commission would be moved to the direct oversight of the Office of the Governor if HB 787 becomes law.
