Comptroller's Office to Host e-Texas Asset & Financial Management Hearing In Austin

(Austin)--Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Rylander's e-Texas Commission will hold a public hearing on the state's asset and financial management systems in Austin on Tuesday, June 27. The e-Texas task force hearing will be from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Texas Bankers Association board room, 203 W. 10th St.

"Texas state government manages a diverse array of assets -- from warehouses to ranchland to stocks and bonds," Comptroller Rylander said. "Bottom line, I want to make sure that we're getting the best return on these investments.

"This hearing will help us find ideas to improve the state's asset and financial management system. I encourage folks to come out, listen to our experts, and give us feedback on the issues they think are critical to improving this important state government function."

Comptroller's office staff will lead discussions on potential sales of state-owned property, ideas for land management, and asset management technology trends.

Speakers include Spencer Reid of Austin, acting deputy commissioner for asset management for the General Land Office; Tom Fordyce of Huntsville, agribusiness director for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice; Dan Daniels of Houston, vice president and general manager for Champion Realty Corp.; and Robert J. McFarland of Nellysford, Va., president and engagement director of Asset Management Consulting.

The hearing is part of Comptroller Rylander's e-Texas citizen commission, which is charged with developing recommendations to help Texas state government meet the challenges of the Internet Age.

Those who cannot attend the hearing can make suggestions on improving the state's asset and financial management systems at: www.e-texas.org.
