• Study the value added opportunities for processing agricultural products grown in Texas.
• Study the success and limitations of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's ongoing efforts to develop and promote the State's recreational infrastructure, wildlife areas, fish hatcheries and related facilities.

• 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.
