Who Reviews The Board?

There is an article in the 9/23/07 Austin American Statesman that asks Should The Sun Set On The Sunset Committee? The Sunset Committee is charged with reviewing state agencies to determine if they are fulfilling their mandates and deserve to continue. I personally have not been pleased with the Sunset Committee. I testified this summer when the Texas Nursing Board was being reviewed. Although everyone that testified informed the Sunset Committee that TPAPN should not be altered, the Sunset Committee still recommended changes which the Legislature enacted. The impression was that it did not make a difference to testify before the Committee.
