The mission and performance of the Texas Board of Professional Geoscientists
are under review by the Legislature as required under the Texas Sunset Act.
The Act provides that the Sunset Commission, composed of legislators and public
members, periodically evaluate a state agency to determine if the agency is still needed
and to explore ways to ensure that the agency’s funds are well spent.
Based on the recommendations of the Sunset Commission, the Texas Legislature
ultimately decides whether an agency continues to operate into the future.
Please see our Sunset Review Page for more information.
