Texas Government Code
Sec. § 411.0036
Removal of Commission Member


(a)

It is a ground for removal from the commission if a member:

(1)

does not have at the time of appointment the qualifications required by Section 411.003;

(2)

does not maintain during service on the commission the qualifications required by Section 411.003;

(3)

violates a prohibition established by Section 411.0035;

(4)

cannot discharge the members duties for a substantial part of the term for which the member is appointed because of illness or disability; or

(5)

is absent from more than half of the regularly scheduled commission meetings that the member is eligible to attend during a calendar year unless the absence is excused by majority vote of the commission.

(b)

The validity of an action of the commission is not affected by the fact that it is taken when a ground for removal of a commission member exists.

(c)

If the director has knowledge that a potential ground for removal exists, the director shall notify the chairman of the commission of the potential ground. The chairman shall then notify the governor and the attorney general that a potential ground for removal exists. If the potential ground for removal involves the chairman, the director shall notify the member with the longest tenure on the commission, other than the chairman, who shall then notify the governor and the attorney general that a potential ground for removal exists.
