AUSTIN – The Texas House released the first batch of interim reports from House committees on Thursday.

Reports from nine committees were posted online at http://www.house.state.tx.us/committees/reports/. In the days and weeks to come, the House will post reports from other committees as the reports are completed.

Reports from the following committees were posted Thursday:

Corrections
Defense & Veterans’ Affairs
Economic & Small Business Development
Homeland Security & Public Safety
Land & Resource Management
Natural Resources
Pensions
Public Health
Special Purpose Districts

In November 2015, Speaker Joe Straus assigned every committee a list of issues to study leading up to the 2017 legislative session. Interim reports describe the committees’ findings and their recommendations heading into the upcoming session.

“House committees have tackled some very challenging and important topics over the last year,” Speaker Straus said. “These reports will give all Members a better understanding of the issues and possible solutions in front of us, and I appreciate the many hours of work and consideration that Members of the House have put into these reports. I’m also grateful for all of the testimony and other input that members of the public have provided in order to make these reports more complete and informative.”
