Charges
• Oversight functions shall be conducted for all appropriations-related actions of those agencies assigned to this committee for appropriative purposes during the 67th Regular Session of the Legislature. In addition, a study should be made of the impact of any federal cuts, and the differences in the operational aspect of the agencies under block vs. categorical grants. Close scrutiny should be given to each agency to ascertain if legislative intent is being carried out in the rules promulgated by the agency and if the rules are feasible and practical in their application. These agencies include:
Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission
• Study the federal proposals which, if enacted, could lead to an erosion of the states' scheme of alcoholic beverage regulation under the Federal Alcohol Administration Act.
• Study recent federal court decisions that threaten the ability of states to control the importation, transportation and use of alcoholic beverages within their own boundaries.
• Study the proposed "Model Uniform State Alcoholic Beverage Regulatory Act."
• Study the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of the purchase of a fleet of state-owned vehicles for law enforcement personnel of the Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
• Review the mixed beverage tax system and recommend any changes necessary to insure the continued protection of the state's revenues in the future.
• Review the production techniques and governmental restraints on wine imposed by other liquor control jurisdictions so that the developing wine industry in Texas may gain the benefit of other states' experience.
