Tomorrow morning the House Corrections Committee will analyze a separate but equally important topic: the Youth Commission's implementation of SB 103, the reform legislation passed this spring.
There's definitely a lot to discuss. To TYC employees and anyone else interested in the agency, use the comments as an Open Thread to say:
What would you tell the Texas Legislature about SB 103 and its implementation?Here's the text of the bill as finally passed, to refresh your memory about what they'll be talking about.
What questions should legislators ask?
Also, whaddya think? Will Ed Owens will show up to present his first, last, and only conservator's report? This hearing may be his swan song. Or in Owens' case, it's more like an ostrich opera.
UPDATE: This morning (10/17), I culled a "greatest hits" version of the questions and comments from this string and emailed them to members of the House Corrections Committee and key staff. Thanks, folks, for the good discussion!
