Texas Youth Commission Proclamation
TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME:
WHEREAS, on March 2, 2007, the Legislative Audit Committee met pursuant to Texas Government Code Sec. 2104.021 and found that gross fiscal mismanagement existed at the Texas Youth Commission (“TYC”) and I placed the agency into conservatorship; and
WHEREAS, I appointed a Conservator to investigate all matters relating to mismanagement of TYC; and
WHEREAS, TYC was required to develop reform and rehabilitation plans to ensure the agency complies with state fiscal management policies and has implemented these plans; and
WHEREAS the Conservator of TYC has found that the conditions that prompted the agency to be placed in conservatorship have been remedied and that the requirements of Senate Bill No. 103, 80th Texas Legislature, the TYC reform bill, are being observed, as are various provisions of the General Appropriations Act, which provide guidelines to reform the commission;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, RICK PERRY, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, by virtue of the power vested in me by the Constitution and laws of this state, do hereby declare that fiscal management issues at TYC have been remedied, confidence has been restored in agency operations and TYC is no longer under conservatorship.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto signed my name and have officially caused the Seal of State to be affixed at my Office in the City of Austin, Texas, this the 14th day of October, 2008.
