The Sunset Review of the Texas Lottery Commission
The mission and performance of the Texas Lottery Commission has been reviewed by the Legislature as required under the Texas Sunset Act. The Act provides that the Sunset Advisory Commission, composed of legislators and public members, periodically evaluate a state agency to determine if the agency is still needed, and what improvements are needed to ensure that state funds are well spent. Based on the recommendations of the Sunset Advisory Commission, the Texas Legislature ultimately decides whether an agency continues to operate into the future.
The 83rd Legislature enacted House Bill 2197, the Texas Lottery Commission Sunset Legislation. Below is a link to the agency’s 2013 Sunset legislation. Currently, the Sunset Advisory Commission is scheduled to again review the Texas Lottery Commission during the 2024 – 2025 review cycle.
