Bill Analysis

SB 2312 would place the education department of Harris County under Sunset review, but would not allow for the department to be abolished under Sunset law.

Texas Action supports SB 2312 which aligns with the principle of limited government by placing Harris County Department of Education under Sunset review. This will bring much-needed transparency and accountability to the department.
