Charges
• Consider the extent to which state regulation and policy are influenced by mandates attached to federal funding. Specifically, identify areas in which benefits to federal funding are outweighed by compliance costs at the state level and areas in which federal mandates may be unconstitutional, and examine the success or failure of efforts by other states to cut ties to federal funding.
• Identify the resolutions approved by the Legislature during recent legislative sessions calling on the federal government to take certain actions, and determine what, if any, actions were taken by the federal government pursuant to such resolutions. Study how these resolutions could be made more effective, and what other avenues may be available to the Legislature as an alternative to or in addition to these resolutions.
• Examine the status of Texas statutes prohibiting or restricting investment in foreign nations. Determine whether and to what extent Texas has the authority to continue or renew its own economic sanctions in light of recent and potential future actions by the federal government.

Note:
Appointed by Speaker Joe Straus 2/4/2015, pursuant to Rule 1, Section 16, House Rules (Proclamation, Speaker Joe Straus, 2/4/2015).
