The mission and performance of the Port of Houston Authority has been reviewed by the Texas Legislature as required under the Texas Sunset Act. In 2011, the Legislature provided for the Sunset Commission, composed of legislators and public members, to evaluate the Authority’s governance, management, operating structure, and compliance with legislative requirements.
On May 24, 2013, legislation was passed by the Legislature implementing its recommendations to improve the Port Authority’s mission and performance.
On September 1, 2013, those provisions will become effective.
