Sunrise, Sunset – Well, Maybe Just Sunrise…

In an unexpected move earlier this month, the Senate unanimously passed an amended bill that would delay by four more years the scheduled sunset review for TDI, DWC, OPIC and OIEC. This will push sunset review of the Division of Workers’ Compensation and the Office of Injured Employee Counsel to 2029, rather than 2025 as originally scheduled. SB1659, which was introduced by Senator Charles Schwertner of Georgetown - current chairman of the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission - will now go to the House of Representatives for further deliberations. At this time, we have no idea what is behind the legislation to postpone review of these agencies, but the legislation seeks to modify the review process for more than 40 Texas agencies.
