Abbott: Replace Sunset Commission With Citizen Panel | The Texas Tribune

Gov.-elect Greg Abbott said Thursday he wants to replace the Texas Sunset Commission with a citizen-led panel on government waste.

Speaking at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s annual Policy Orientation conference, Abbott said the Sunset system “seldom eliminates unnecessary agencies.”

“We need citizens with a seat at the table helping us to reshape the way the regulatory agencies are running the state of Texas,” he said.

“I see volunteers already,” he said as several members of the audience raised their hands.
