Texas Health and Safety Code

Sec. § 534.033
Limitation on Department Control and Review


It is the intent of the legislature that each department limit its control over, and routine reviews of, community center programs to those programs that:


use funds from that department or use required local funds that are matched with funds from that department;


provide core or required services;


provide services to former clients or patients of a facility of that department; or


are affected by litigation in which that department is a defendant.


Each appropriate department may review any community center program if the department has reason to suspect that a violation of a department rule has occurred or if the department receives an allegation of patient or client abuse.


Each appropriate department may determine whether a particular program uses funds from that department or uses required local matching funds.
