AUSTIN, TX — In the interest of providing improved state services at a lower cost to taxpayers, State Representative Matt Shaheen (Collin County) filed House Bill 3221. This legislation directs the comptroller of public accounts to conduct a study that evaluates the potential cost savings deliverable to the state through the consolidation of procurement and purchasing functions by state agencies. Speaking to taxpayers, Representative Shaheen said, “We must always seek innovative improvements to the way government operates, to save taxpayer money. House Bill 3221 gives us the information needed to take a major step toward this goal.” The bill would require the comptroller to produce the report by the end of 2017.
