Sunset Advisory Commission Invites Public Input on the Texas Prepaid Higher Education Tuition Board

The Texas Sunset Advisory Commission is reviewing the mission and performance of the Texas Prepaid Higher Education Tuition Board (Board) and welcomes public comments on whether the agency is still needed and ideas to improve its operations and services.

The Texas Sunset Act requires the Sunset Commission to periodically review this board and recommend whether to continue the agency and change state law to improve the agency’s efficiency and effectiveness. The Legislature ultimately will decide whether to continue the board and adopt Sunset’s other statutory recommendations. The Sunset Commission also may adopt management directives for the board that do not require statutory change.

The Sunset process has three stages. First, Sunset staff will evaluate the board, seek public input, and issue a report recommending solutions to problems found.

Second, the Sunset Commission will hold two public meetings: a hearing on the staff report and the board, and a decision meeting to adopt recommendations to the Legislature based on the report and public comments.

Third, the Legislature will convene in January 2021 and will consider Sunset’s statutory recommendations in a Sunset bill for the board.

Here are several ways to provide comments and suggestions to Sunset staff on the board’s mission, operations, and services:

  • Send an email to
  • Submit comments online at
  • Send a letter to:
    Sunset Advisory Commission
    Attn: Texas Prepaid Higher Education Tuition Board
    P.O. Box 13066
    Austin, Texas 78711
  • Call 512-463-1300 to speak to Morgan Constantino, project manager of the board’s review

Please provide your comments by Friday, November 15, 2019 to ensure Sunset staff can fully consider your input while conducting their review. Comments submitted before the staff report is published in March 2020 will remain confidential.
