Sunset Advisory Commission Invites Public Input
on the Brazos River Authority
The Sunset Advisory Commission is reviewing the mission and performance of the Brazos River Authority (BRA)
and welcomes public comments on ideas to improve its operations and services. The Texas Sunset Act requires
the Sunset Commission to periodically review BRA and recommend whether to change state law to improve the
authority’s efficiency and effectiveness. The Legislature ultimately will decide whether to adopt Sunset’s
statutory recommendations. The Sunset Commission also may adopt management directives for BRA that do not
require statutory change.
The Sunset process has three stages. First, Sunset staff will evaluate BRA, seek public input, and issue
a report recommending solutions to problems found. Second, the Sunset Commission will hold two public
meetings: a hearing on the staff report and the authority, and a decision meeting to adopt recommendations
to the Legislature based on the report and public comments. Third, the Legislature will convene in
January 2021 and will consider Sunset’s statutory recommendations in a Sunset bill for BRA.
Here are several ways to provide comments and suggestions to Sunset staff on BRA’s mission, operations, and services:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Submit comments online at www.sunset.texas.gov
- Send a letter to Sunset Advisory Commission, Attn: BRA, P.O. Box 13066, Austin, Texas 78711
- Call (512) 463-1300 to speak to Robert Romig, project manager of the BRA review
Please provide your comments by July 31, 2020 to ensure Sunset staff can fully consider
your input while conducting their review. Comments submitted before the staff report is
published in November 2020 will remain confidential.
