UT Regents to Discuss Impeachment Probe 9/18/13
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The University of Texas System regents plan to discuss
in private a state investigation that could result in the impeachment of one of
their board members.
The Board of Regents has scheduled a special telephone conference to
consider legal matters related to the House Select Committee on Transparency in
State Agency Operations. That is the so-called "transparency committee"
investigating Regent Wallace Hall Jr.
Hall is under scrutiny for burying the flagship UT Austin campus under open
records requests. Some lawmakers believe he aims to oust UT President Bill
Powers, whose strong political support doesn't include Gov. Rick Perry.
Regents also are to discuss privately the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on
affirmative action in admissions. The UT admission plan survived a consensus
Supreme Court decision.
