Sunset Commission rejects proposal to close 87 DPS offices

State Representative Geanie W. Morrison thanks the Texas Sunset Commission for ending consideration of closing DPS offices in Port Lavaca and other rural communities:

“The decision of the Sunset Commission to remove from consideration the recommendation to close 87 DPS Offices around the state and reallocate the resources to more densely populated areas stops a significant, negative impact on communities in House District 30 and those of other rural communities. I truly appreciate the thought that the Sunset Commission put into this action and for making the best decision for rural communities. Keeping DPS Offices in these communities will allow citizens to continue to receive the services that their taxes support.”

-Chairman Geanie W. Morrison
