Sunset Advisory Commission Invites Public Input on the Lavaca-Navidad River Authority

The Sunset Advisory Commission is reviewing the mission and performance of the Lavaca-Navidad River Authority (LNRA) and welcomes public comments on ideas to improve its operations and services. The Texas Sunset Act requires the Sunset Commission to periodically review LNRA and recommend whether to change state law to improve the authority’s efficiency and effectiveness. The Legislature ultimately will decide whether to adopt Sunset’s statutory recommendations. The Sunset Commission also may adopt management directives for LNRA that do not require statutory change.


The Sunset process has three stages. First, Sunset staff will evaluate LNRA, seek public input, and issue a report recommending solutions to problems found. Second, the Sunset Commission will hold two public meetings: a hearing on the staff report and the agency, and a decision meeting to adopt recommendations to the Legislature based on the report and public comments. Third, the Legislature will convene in January 2023 and will consider Sunset’s statutory recommendations in a Sunset bill for LNRA.

Here are several ways to provide comments and suggestions to Sunset staff on LNRA’s mission, operations, and services:

  • Send an email to sunset@sunset.texas.gov
  • Submit comments online at www.sunset.texas.gov
  • Send a letter to Sunset Advisory Commission, Attn: LNRA, P.O. Box 13066, Austin, Texas 78711
  • Call (512) 463-1300 to speak to Robert Romig, project manager of the LNRA review

Please provide your comments by September 1, 2022 to ensure Sunset staff can fully consider your input while conducting their review. Comments submitted before the staff report is published in November 2022 will remain confidential.
