Relating to the administration of emergency management in this state.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 2794 would transfer the Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) from the Department of Public Safety to the Texas A&M University System. Under the new authority, TDEM would become an agency of the Texas A&M University System. The provisions of this bill are in accordance with recommendations made by The Governor's Commission to Rebuild Texas which was established in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 2794 as its provisions do not appear to affect our liberty principles.
