  • Evaluate the effectiveness of state and federal food safety programs to improve public confidence in Texas food products and understanding of methods for safe food preparation.
  • Study and design a system to collect Texas health care information, including information costs and quality of care. Priority emphasis should be given to detailed cost information that can be used to evaluate and support changes in provider reimbursement levels and methodologies, including cost containment initiatives.
  • Conduct active oversight of agencies under the committee's jurisdiction, including a study of mandated reports to the legislature and legislative agencies. The study should consist of a review of the legislative reporting requirements of all agencies to identify areas where reporting obligations could be streamlined and agency accountability improved. The committee shall make specific recommendations about the continuation, modification or elimination of required legislative reports.
