Charges: This report should address the charges below.
1. 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.
2. Study the effects on total appraised values of various property tax exemptions (e.g., homestead, public lands, religious institutions) and special valuations (e.g., agricultural use, timber, open space and park land).
3. Examine the franchise tax apportionment methodology provided under Section 171.106(c), Tax Code, to determine whether the streamlined calculations afforded under the methodology should be applied to managers of employee retirement plans.
4. Study the new franchise tax system to determine how it has shifted the tax burden among different types of businesses; e.g. among industries, between capital and labor intensive industries, and between large and small businesses.
