About the Sunset Process
The Texas Sunset Process allows the Texas Legislature to review the mission and operations of a state agency and determines whether a need for the agency continues to exist. About 130 agencies are subject to the Texas Sunset Act, and agencies are typically reviewed once every 12 years. The Sunset Advisory Commission (SAC) is charged with reviewing agencies subject to Sunset. The first step in the process is for the agency under review to complete a self-evaluation report (SER), which describes agency functions in detail and identifies issues for consideration during the Sunset review. The basic steps in the process are as follows.
- Agency submits SER
- SAC staff evaluation
- SAC report publication
- SAC public hearings
- SAC recommendation to continue or abolish the agency
- If SAC recommends continuation, Legislature considers filed bill
