Texas lawmakers battle with Land Office over transparency in Alamo restoration

Texas lawmakers battle with Land Office over transparency in Alamo restoration



2017-12-07T01:54:00+0000

“The $75 million commitment was a commitment for the people of Texas, and it’s important Texans know how we spend that money,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairwoman Jane Nelson.

Because the Alamo Trust is a private organization, it and its staff aren't subject to the Texas Public Information Act. Some committee members said that they'd like to see Alamo staff working directly for the state for transparency's sake.

I don't know why Trump did this for 18 woman he is the top law enforcement and he can fire any judges.

Meanwhile the most wanted sexual predator (45) continues to go untouched. When will he turn himself in?

I can't hear youuuu!!! I can't hear anything

HBU should be doing a better job of teaching their players how to be respectable young men.

BAPTIST COLLEGE , huh !

The UT Tower will shine with burnt-orange lights and “17” displayed on its sides to honor the Class of 2017 and this year’s graduates on both Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10: utex.as/2AJ6BHe

Why is the University discontinuing the fall graduation ceremonies? Even this year several colleges including the CNS did not have one. This is so wrong and it is allienating many graduating students who should be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with their University. Their University should honor their efforts and achievements but having the full graduation ceremony for all students graduating in December. There are a very large number effected by this ridiculous decision. Think about not just the dollars that it cost today to put on these ceremonies but the dollars that could be brought in in the future through donations given by these students who feel that their hard work was rewarded by their University. UT, please explain this unfortunate decision and it get it correct for next December.

Congratulations to all the 2017 graduates at The University of Texas at Austin! There's no place like UT! You have so much to be proud of and are well-equipped for a wonderful future! Enjoy your life's journey! Cheers, blessings and love from someone who cares in Far West Texas!

Awesome and congratulations 🤘

In 2008, he insulted Texas students when he was the AD for Rice while at the Rice Alumni tailgate before the Texas game. He said Texas students were just people who weren’t smart enough to get into Rice. Now he’s probably talking about how great Texas is. Liar. Asshole.

You idiots that scream for Beck to be fired. You can’t have any offensive scheme without a line. If you don’t know football, then don’t speak.

As long as he doesn’t take coaches with him, I am ok. UT has been trying to entice Tcu coaches every time they fire one.

Welcome ATX I hope we going to be Champions again.

Terry Harris. A frog leaps to Austin. Terry Harris

Hook ‘em!

Well. We are in for a lot more losing and down years. I’m out.

🤘

Welcome to Texas! Now fire Beck tomorrow.

Now fire tim beck

Better mind them boosters

We’re behind you, win or tie! 🤘🤘🤘

You still can not get our coach.

Welcome Chris! HOOK EM!!

Can you bring your OC with you please? 😏

So sorry you left TCU, Chris.

Great hire!

🤘🏻

🤘

Hot mess. Good luck DC
