School will be back in session and we are kicking off the interim with a Roundtable discussion featuring Sunset Commission policy analysts Julie Davis and Robert Romig. Davis and Romig were involved in multiple high profile reviews during the last cycle - Romig led the behavioral health agency consolidation efforts, and Davis led the review of the Plumbers and was on the DPS review - so they have a wide perspective of different types of reviews.
Topics to be discussed at the Roundtable will include an overview of the Sunset review process, agencies up for review, and how stakeholders can effectively be involved. As part of the discussion Davis and Romig will advise on the best ways to contact project managers once the agency assignments have been made (staff assignments are expected to be released publicly around September 1), as well as offer options for general stakeholder input in reviews if clients would like to provide more individualized comments on an agency. The Commission has contact lists for agencies, so Davis and Romig will also outline how to ensure associations or other contacts are included in the updates during the reviews and stakeholder surveys.
