Testimony to the Sunset Advisory Commission
Texans Care for Children would like to thank the Sunset Staff for the thoughtful consideration given to our Health and Human Services Agencies and all the important, at times life-saving, health and social services they perform for Texans. The Sunset Staff have identified some of the most pressing problems facing our health and human services system, and identified a number of strategies that will help improve our state’s ability to efficiently deliver services to the state’s most vulnerable populations, including the thousands of children who receive services through the Texas enterprise. Below are preliminary comments regarding several of the Sunset Staff’s recommendations. We look forward to working with the Sunset Commission, the Legislature, and state agencies moving forward through the Sunset process.
