The Source: UT Regent Takes Another Step Toward Impeachment

May 13, 2014

Yesterday the Texas House Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations voted 7-1 to begin impeachment of University of Texas Regent Wallace Hall.

Hall has been accused of waging a wasteful open records search for impropriety at UT-Austin in an effort to drive out President Bill Powers. The committee began its inquest into the regent nine months ago. 

This is the farthest in the impeachment process the state has ever gone with a governor-appointed official.
