HB 142 Review: Required Advisory Councils and Reports
The 2011 Legislature passed House Bill 142, which requires a review of advisory councils and agency reports that are required by state law. The Children and Families Committee is required to review the advisory councils related to the Department of Public Health and Human Services, as well as reports that the agency must submit to the Legislature.
Based on its review, the committee will decide whether any of the councils or reports should be eliminated or whether the requirements for a council or report should be changed.
The committee reviewed information related to the councils and reports at its May 14, 2012, meeting. Members also took public comment at that time. At their June 2012 meeting, they decided against introducing legislation to eliminate or revise any of the councils or reports.
