Legislative review may be up to voters

A bill pending in Texas requires agencies to wait before adopting rules until the appropriate standing committee of each house reviews the rules. Under present law the legislature is limited to sending agencies a statement supporting or opposing adoption of a rule. The new legislative review authority, if adopted by the legislature, is contingent upon voters approving a constitutional amendment to provide for legislative review of rules.
