Agency History

The governor of Texas is the chief executive officer of the state, elected by the citizens every four years. The duties and responsibilities of the governor include serving as commander-in-chief of the state's military forces; convening special sessions of the legislature for specific purposes; delivering to the legislature at the beginning of each regular session a report on the condition of the state, an accounting of all public money under the governor's control, a recommended biennial budget, an estimate of the amounts of money required to be raised by taxation, and any recommendations he deems necessary; signing or vetoing bills passed by the legislature; and executing the laws of the state. The governor can grant reprieves and commutations of punishment and pardons, upon the recommendation of the Board of Pardons and Paroles, and revoke conditional pardons. He appoints numerous state officials (with the consent of the Senate), fills vacancies in state and district offices (except vacancies in the legislature), calls special elections to fill vacancies in the legislature, fills vacancies in the United States Senate until an election can be held, and serves as ex officio member of several state boards.

The office of governor was first established by the Constitution of 1845 and superseded the office of president of the Republic of Texas. The position now exists under authority of Article IV, Section 1 of the Constitution of 1876 and Texas Government Code, Chapter 401. To be elected governor, a person must be at least thirty years old, a United States citizen, and a resident of Texas for at least five years preceding the election. In 1972, the term of office was extended from two to four years, effective in 1975. Since 1856 the governor has had the use of the Governor's Mansion.

In 1999 there were 198 full time equivalent employees in the Office of the Governor. Thirteen divisions outside of the Executive Office assist the governor in carrying out his functions: Administration; Appointments; Budget & Planning; Communications; General Counsel; Legislative; Policy; Scheduling; Criminal Justice Division; Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities; Office of Film, Music, Television and Multimedia Industries; Women's Commission; and Texas Council on Workforce and Economic Competitiveness.

The primary function of the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities is to further opportunities for people with disabilities in the state of Texas. A complete explanation of the functions of this committee was set forth in Senate Bill 381, 72nd Legislature, Regular Session and includes monitoring the state's compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), providing information to the public regarding ADA, serving as liaison with other organizations assisting the disabled, promoting coordination of services for persons with disabilities, making recommendations to the governor on programs supporting persons with disabilities, monitoring the implementation of a long-range state plan for Texans with disabilities, and issuing awards and other recognition to persons and organizations making a difference for persons with disabilities. The Governor's Committee on Employment for the Handicapped was first created by Governor Dolph Briscoe in 1978 through Executive Order DB-40. Executive orders by governors William P. Clements in 1981 (WPC-14A) and 1987 (WPC 87-16) and Mark White in 1983 (MW-10) continued the committee, with Executive Order MW-10 changing the name to Governor's Committee for Disabled Persons. In 1991 the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities was created statutorily by Senate Bill 381 in order to continue the functions of the Council on Disabilities, a separate entity, which was abolished on the recommendation of the Sunset Commission.

George W. Bush Biographical Sketch

George W. Bush served as governor of Texas from January 17, 1995 to December 21, 2000, resigning as governor in the middle of his second term to become president of the United States.

He challenged the incumbent governor, Democrat Ann Richards, running on promises to improve public education and to reform the juvenile justice system, welfare, and the state's tort laws -- the system under which an injured person may sue for damages. During the 74th Legislature in 1995, he worked with the Democrats who controlled both houses of the Texas legislature and managed to get bills passed that dealt with the four issues he had emphasized in his campaign. Bush was seen as pro-business and a consensus-builder.

Bush advocated and signed the two largest tax cuts to date in Texas history, totaling over $3 billion. To pay for the cuts, he sought (unsuccessfully) federal approval of a plan to privatize Texas' social services. Education reform was a priority throughout his terms, with legislation emphasizing local control of schools, higher standards, and a revised curriculum. Controversy has followed, with charter schools mired in financial scandals and protests against one test determining a child's promotion. After winning reelection in 1998, Bush began his bid for the presidency and was not as involved in the 76th Legislature in 1999.

George W. Bush was born July 6, 1946 in New Haven, Connecticut and grew up in Midland and Houston, Texas. He graduated from Andover Academy, and received a bachelor's degree from Yale University and a master's from Harvard Business School. He served as a pilot in the Texas Air National Guard. In 1978, Bush was defeated in a run for the U.S. Congress in West Texas. He was involved in energy exploration from the 1970s into the 1980s. From 1989 until his election as governor, Bush worked with the Texas Rangers baseball organization, leading a group of partners in purchasing the team, and then serving as managing general partner. He married Laura Welch in 1977; they have two daughters.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The primary function of the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities (GCPD) is to further opportunities for people with disabilities in the state of Texas. Types of records in this group include correspondence, memoranda, minutes, agenda, meeting files, and related materials that document the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities, especially during Governor George W. Bush's term in office. Dates range from 1984 to 2001 and undated with the bulk of records dating from 1995 to 2000.

The records of the Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities are divided into two series: Correspondence and Meeting files. Correspondence is composed of correspondence, attachments, clippings, and related printed materials, 1989 to 2000 and undated. Correspondence passes between committee members, the Governor's staff, state agencies, state and local officials, federal organizations, businesses, and the general public. Issues include topics pertaining to the Governor's charges (as set forth in Senate Bill 381 in 1991), compliance with the ADA, constituents' health concerns, and similar areas. Meeting files comprises a small amount of paper copies of minutes, agenda, and related material, 1984-1991, and 82 audiocassettes, 1995-2000. All of the paper documents pre-date Governor Bush's tenure in office. However, the audiotapes date from his terms of office and include records of committee and subcommittee meetings.

Accession Information

Accession number: 2002/151

In December 2000, Governor George W. Bush designated the George Bush Presidential Library as the repository for the records from his tenure as Governor of Texas, under authority of Texas Government Code, Section 441.201. Shortly after he left office, the records were shipped to the Bush Library in College Station, Texas. Texas Attorney General John Cornyn ruled that the records are state records subject to the Texas Public Information Act and the management of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission even after transfer to a federal facility (Opinion No. JC-0498, May 3, 2002). In July 2002 the records were transferred from the Bush Library to the Texas State Archives in Austin for preparation for research use. In June 2003, a memorandum of understanding signed by representatives of the National Archives and Records Administration, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, and George W. Bush replaced a January 2002 interim memorandum of understanding. The records were moved to the George W. Bush Presidential Library in February 2013.

The primary function of the Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities is to further opportunities for people with disabilities in the state of Texas. Records in this series comprise a small amount of paper copies of minutes and agenda (with notes and a few attachments), dating from 1984 to 1991, and 82 audiocassette tapes, 1995-2000, of the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities. All of the paper documents pre-date Governor Bush's tenure in office. However, the audiotapes date from his terms of office and include records of committee and subcommittee meetings. Some cassettes appear to be missing based on the agency numbering on individual audiocassettes and, in some cases, the meeting year is not specified. Issues discussed include long-range plans for Texans with disabilities, demographic surveys, task force reports, and legislative updates.
