Capital Clemency Files, 1972-1994, (bulk 1991-1994)
(12 ft.).
Scope and Contents of the Capital Clemency Files
Records are correspondence, court records, legal documents, memoranda, petitions, clippings, videotapes, proclamations and requests for reprieves. Files date from 1972 to 1994 (bulk 1991-1994) and are the capital clemency files from Governor Richards' general counsel's office. With recommendation from the Board of Pardons and Paroles, the governor of Texas has the right to pardon, grant a 30-day reprieve in a capital case, commute sentences, and remit fines. Records are files regarding death row inmates executed during Governor Richards' term in office. Correspondents include the inmate and his family, the inmate's lawyers, the governor and her general counsel, district and appellate court judges, staff of the Attorney General's Office, the Texas Department of Corrections (later the Texas Department of Criminal Justice), the Board of Pardons and Paroles, and the general public. David Talbot served as General Counsel during Governor Richards' term in office. Additional correspondence from individuals and groups opposing the execution of death row inmates can be found in the General Counsel's Administrative correspondence. Records are divided between files of background information on death row inmates and protest correspondence. Arrangement is somewhat alphabetical by last name of the inmate.
RESTRICTION: All General Counsel materials are restricted due to attorney-client confidentiality.

Policy Council Files, 1988-1995,
(18 ft.).

Scope and Contents of the Policiy Council Files
The Policy Council in the Office of the Governor was created to help ensure that the governor's policies were implemented by state agencies and commissions. The council was organized by issues such as education, health and human services, environment, and border and immigration; it advised the governor on emerging problems and opportunities and developed policy options for the governor's consideration. Directors of the council were the governor's primary liaisons to state agencies and board members, and they directed special committees or projects that the governor authorized. The Policy Council recommended candidates for appointments to agency positions and evaluated potential appointments. It also analyzed legislative proposals (in cooperation with the Legislative Office) and assisted the Budget and Planning Office in evaluating agency budget proposals.
These are the files of Governor Richards' Policy Council and they cover border and immigration, education, the environment, health and human services, and transportation issues. Susan Rieff served as director of the Policy Council during Ann Richards' tenure as Governor. Subseries are organized by policy areas. Records are correspondence, clippings, memos, lists, notes, charts, agenda, press releases, reports, proposals, resolutions, charts, publications, maps, minutes, rules, legislation, forms, recommendations, timelines, and printed material, dating from 1988 to 1995.
Border and Immigration Issues, 1990-1994,
(6 ft.).
Scope and Contents of the Border and Immigration Issues
Records are correspondence, clippings, memos, lists, notes, charts, agenda, press releases, reports, proposals, resolutions, charts, publications, maps, minutes, rules, legislation, forms, recommendations, and printed material, dating from 1990-1994 (bulk 1993-1994). These are subject files for the Governor's policy council section on border and immigration issues. Subjects include colonias, relations with Mexican border states and cities, the North American Free Trade Agreement, education, ecology, communication, the environment, health, immigration, transportation, utilities, and Tropical Storm Arlene. Geographical areas covered are the Rio Grande Valley, El Paso, Laredo, and the Mexican border states. A small amount of material is in Spanish. Sandra Martinez served as the director of border issues for the Governor's Policy Council. Part of the files are arranged alphabetically by subject. Other sections are grouped by broad topic and then are alphabetical.

Scope and Contents of the Health and Human Services Issues
Records are correspondence, reports, overviews, memos, legislation, publications, timelines, lists, clippings, goals, press releases, charts, correspondence, master plans, program information, and a correspondence log, dating from 1988-1994 (bulk 1994). Materials are files of the Governor's Policy Council section on health and human services. Subjects of letters include nursing homes and elderly care, child care, requests to serve as delegates to the 1995 White House Conference on Aging, medically underserved areas, and substance abuse programs in prison. Additional files detail the Texas Criminal Justice Treatment Initiative, involving substance abuse treatment in prisons or alternative locations. Pat Cole served as director of health and human services issues for the Policy Council. The correspondence probably was to be filed in the main correspondence files, but filing was not done before Richards left office. Correspondence is in chronological order by month. Arrangement of substance abuse treatment files is somewhat by type of material.
