Select House Committees

In recent weeks I have written about the interim committee charges for some of the 32 standing committees in the Texas House of Representatives. In addition to the standing committees, there are a number of select committees that are studying various issues this interim. While most select house committees are created by the speaker of the house, some others were created through legislation passed during the last legislative session. The members of each committee are appointed by the speaker. The select committees usually have a more narrow focus than standing committees and are formed for the purpose of studying a specific issue affecting the state. After a select committee has studied its charge and issued its report, it is often disbanded; standing committees remain operational throughout the biennium. This week I will talk about a one of these select committees.

House Select Committee on the Fiscal Impact of Texas Border Support Operations

In July, the speaker announced the creation of the Select Committee on the Fiscal Impact of Texas Border Support Operations, which is charged with examining the short- and long-term budgetary effects of addressing increased activity along the Texas-Mexico border. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America have crossed into Texas in recent months, raising concerns about the ability of federal, state, and local authorities to focus on fighting drug cartels and other criminal activity along the border. Speaker Straus and other state leaders recently directed additional resources to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) for law enforcement operations in the border region, and Governor Perry has sent 1000 National Guard troops to assist law enforcement in the area. The committee will monitor the costs of those operations and other services associated with increased border crossings. The committee will also review and evaluate any support that Texas receives from the federal government to address this issue and study the influx's effect on resources available to local governments. Finally, the committee will determine the long-term budgetary effect of efforts to ensure Texans' safety.
For more information on this select committee or any other matter of state government, please contact my office by writing to P.O. Box 2910, Austin, TX 78768-2910 or by emailing me at larry.phillips@house.state.tx.us. My district office phone number is (903) 891-7297.
