CPRIT’s Oversight Committee met November 1 for the first time since February beginning a new era for the agency – one with a higher level of transparency, improved processes and strengthened accountability to the taxpayers of Texas.

Within days, we’ll post a video of the proceedings to our website as well. Major actions of the Oversight Committee include:
It’s nice to be back at work!
