Texas Tax Reform Commission

Description: The Texas Tax Reform Commission (TTRC) was a bipartisan group of 24 Texans who developed proposals to modernize the state tax system and provide long-term property tax relief as well as sound financing for public schools. Governor Rick Perry directed the Commission to make recommendations on how to reform the state's business tax structure and provide significant property tax relief. Both goals are essential to promoting long-term economic growth and ensuring a stable, long-term source of revenue for public education. Accordingly. the Commission presented its final Report in March, 2006 and the recommendations not only address the Governor's directive, but also meet later court-mandated improvements in how Texas funds its schools.

President's Commission on the United States Postal Service

Description: The Commission's objective was to advise the President on the state of the United States Postal Service, prepare a report articulating a vision for the future of the United States Postal Service, and recommend the legislative and administrative steps necessary to enact reform needed to ensure the viability of postal services. Much has changed since the nation last revisited its mail system in 1970, most notably the rise of the Internet as a faster and more affordable communications alternative. Accordingly, the Commission final recommendations aim to tailor the Postal Service to the modern mail needs of the country and focus the institution on "best execution" in all aspects of its operations. The report concluded that a revitalized 21st century Postal Service-one that makes best use of every resource it has and takes full advantage of private-sector partnerships and new technologies-can serve as a prime example of how to enhance the quality and cost effectiveness of operations throughout the Federal government.
