Important Notice from the Sunset Advisory Commission

The Sunset Review of the State Committee of Examiners in the Fitting and Dispensing of Hearing Instruments and the State Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

The mission and performance of the State Committee of Examiners in the Fitting and Dispensing of Hearing Instruments and the State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology are currently being reviewed by the Legislature as required under the Texas Sunset Act. The Act provides that the Sunset Commission, composed of legislators and public members, periodically evaluate a state agency to determine if the agency is still needed, and what improvements are needed to ensure that state funds are well spent. Based on the recommendations of the Sunset Commission, the Texas Legislature ultimately decides whether an agency continues to operate into the future.

The Sunset review involves three steps. First, Sunset Commission staff will evaluate the State Committee of Examiners in the Fitting and Dispensing of Hearing Instruments and the State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and, in October 2010, will issue a report recommending solutions to problems found. The Sunset Commission will then meet to hear public testimony on the agencies and the recommendations of the Sunset staff. This meeting is scheduled for November 16, 2010. Based on public input and the Sunset staff report, the Sunset Commission will adopt recommendations for the full Legislature to consider when it convenes in January 2011.

Through the Sunset review, every Texan has the opportunity to suggest ways in which the mission and operations of the State Committee of Examiners in the Fitting and Dispensing of Hearing Instruments and the State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology can be strengthened. If you would like to share your ideas about the agencies, you may send an email to the address below, use the comment form on the Sunset Commission website, or contact Erick Fajardo of the Sunset staff. Suggestions are preferred by July 12, 2010, so they can be fully considered by the Sunset staff.
