HB2605 by Flynn (Relating to the distribution of certain consultants' reports.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Government Code, Section 2254 to require that consulting services contracts include a provision that allows the contracting state agency to distribute any report produced from the contract and post it on the agency or a standing legislative committee website. A sample of agencies including the Employees Retirement System (ERS), the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) and the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) indicate that any costs associated with the bill could be absorbed within each agency's existing resources.
