Compact with Texans


The requirement for a Compact with Texans was enacted during the 76th Texas legislative session through Senate Bill 1563 and can now be found in Chapter 2114 of the Government Code. The Compact requires state agencies to provide the public with information on their mission, programs, principles and standards of customer service, procedures for receiving and responding to public contacts and complaints, customer waiting times, and licensing and certification procedures.
