Sunset sends recommendation for single agency to lawmakers

On December 10, the Sunset Advisory Commission voted to recommend to the Legislature that Texas’ five health and human services agencies be combined into one agency.

"This reorganization of Texas health and human services agencies will better serve our most vulnerable citizens and will create one front door for Texans who are seeking services," said Senator Jane Nelson, who chairs the commission. "By creating one agency, we will also be able to eliminate duplicative functions and inefficiencies throughout our health and human services."
