Tex. Gov't Code Section 413.004
Executive Director


The policy council is under the direction of an executive director.


The executive director is appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate. The appointment of an executive director shall be made without regard to the race, color, disability, sex, religion, age, or national origin of the appointee.


A person is not eligible for appointment as the executive director if the person or the person’s spouse:


is employed by or participates in the management of a business entity or other organization receiving funds from the policy council;


owns or controls, directly or indirectly, more than a 10 percent interest in a business entity or other organization receiving funds from the policy council; or


uses or receives a substantial amount of tangible goods, services, or funds from the policy council, other than compensation or reimbursement authorized by law for the executive director.


The executive director may not work for any agency or office of the state other than the policy council and may not perform duties for any other state agency or office that negatively affect the performance of the executive director’s duties as executive director of the policy council.


It is a ground for removal from the position of executive director if the appointee:


is disqualified for the position under Subsection (c) or engages in an activity after appointment that, under Subsection (c), would have disqualified the person for appointment to the position;


violates a prohibition established by Subsection (d) or Section 413.006 (Conflict of Interests); or


cannot because of illness or disability discharge the executive director’s duties.
Amended by Acts 1997, 75th Leg., ch. 298, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1997.
