TexasISD "Events and Opportunities"

Eichelbaum Wardell Hansen Powell & Muñoz, P.C.

Senate Bill 943 goes into effect on January 1, 2020 and brings with it a sweeping change to how the Public Information Act handles high dollar contracts and a new category of documents called "contracting information." Not only are there new deadlines and responsibilities for PIA officers, but contracts worth over $1 million need to have new language to comply with the law. Learn everything you need to know as a PIA officer or the purchasing department for dealing with the new requirements in the new year.

  • Expanded duties and powers of Public Information Officers
  • Duties of employees to provide or maintain information
