Sunset Advisory Commission Invites Public Input

on the Sabine River Authority

The Sunset Advisory Commission is reviewing the mission and performance of the Sabine River Authority (SRA) and welcomes public comments on ideas to improve its operations and services. The Texas Sunset Act requires the Sunset Commission to periodically review SRA and recommend changes in operations or state law to improve the authority’s efficiency and effectiveness. The Legislature ultimately will decide whether to adopt Sunset’s statutory recommendations. The Sunset Commission also may adopt management directives for SRA that do not require statutory change.

The Sunset process has three stages. First, Sunset staff will evaluate SRA, seek public input, and issue a report recommending solutions to problems found. Second, the Sunset Commission will hold two public meetings: a hearing on the staff report and the agency, and a decision meeting to adopt recommendations to the Legislature based on the report and public comments. Third, the Legislature will convene in January 2025 and will consider Sunset’s statutory recommendations in a Sunset bill for SRA.

Here are several ways to provide comments and suggestions to Sunset staff on SRA’s mission, operations, and services:

·         Send an email to

·         Submit comments online at

·         Send a letter to Sunset Advisory Commission, Attn: SRA, P.O. Box 13066, Austin, Texas 78711

·         Call (512) 463-1300 to speak to Chris Keslar, project manager of the SRA review

Please provide your comments by March 31st, 2024, to ensure Sunset staff can fully consider your input while conducting their review. Comments submitted before the staff report is published in April 2024 will remain confidential.
