Agency History

The Governor's Commission on Physical Fitness was created by Senate Bill 574, 62nd Legislature, effective June 14, 1971 (Texas Civil Statutes, Article 4413(44)). It consisted of 15 members representing all fields of physical fitness (including both youth and adult levels), “widely known for their professional competence and experience.” The Governor appointed members for six-year terms, with the advice and consent of the State Senate. The purposes of the Commission were to educate the general public concerning the needs for, and benefits of physical fitness; to help coordinate the efforts of the Central Education Agency, local school boards, private and parochial schools, industry, and physical fitness commissions of local government, of other states, and of the federal government in the field of physical fitness; to disseminate physical fitness information by publications, conferences, workshops, programs, lectures, etc.; to collect pertinent information and data available from other state departments and agencies; to encourage, promote, and assist in the development of physical fitness programs for all ages; to evaluate existing programs; and to inventory existing facilities and make recommendations for their optimum utilization. Following Sunset Commission review, the Governor's Commission on Physical Fitness was abolished in 1987.
