Charges
• Examine the decisions of Texas appellate courts over the last five years to identify those decisions that:
(1) clearly failed to properly implement legislative purposes;
(2) found two or more statutes to be in conflict;
(3) held a statute to be unconstitutional;
(4) expressly found a statute to be ambiguous; or
(5) expressly suggested legislative action.
• Make recommendations for corrective legislation in response to the Committee's findings. To the extent possible, corrective legislation proposed by the committee should have the purpose of effectuating the original legislative intent of the statutes considered by the court and should not recommend other substantive changes.
