  • To recommend to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission which study recommendations should be implemented, including priorities for implementation, a feasible timeline, and resources required.
  • To identify and report to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and the Texas Library Association Executive Board and Legislative Committee any legislative issues related to public library development for the 2005 legislative session.
