Interesting that he would pursue an opinion on this and NOT pursue an issue requested earlier concerning legalities of Hospital District/Pecan Plantation!  Seems old board members and former elected county attorney has their hands in this!!!!!  Enough of this playing around and skirting TRUE issues. All the old board is trying to do is get their foot back in the door after we voters voted them out!!!!  We wanted board members that would serve US, think on their own by bringing constructive ideas, and DO THE RIGHT THINGS!  We taxpayers want a medical center that fits our community---not only serve those employed by hospital!  If we need specialized services----the medical community in our immediate surrounding areas can serve us without over taxing us!!!!!!

My opinion is that he did it because the board voted for him to. Wouldn't do it for a citizen.

The Hospital District board voted to request an opinion from the Office of Attorney General. Sections 402.042 and 402.043 of the Texas Government Code list the officials who are authorized to request formal attorney general opinions on questions of law. The attorney general is prohibited by statute from giving a written opinion to anyone other than an authorized requestor. Authorized requestors are:

  • the governor
  • the head of a department of state government
  • the head or board of a penal institution
  • the head or board of an eleemosynary institution
  • the head of a state board
  • a regent or trustee of a state educational institution
  • a committee of a house of the Texas Legislature
  • a county auditor authorized by law
  • the chairman of the governing board of a river authority
  • a district or county attorney

A person other than an authorized requestor who would like to request an attorney general opinion may ask an authorized requestor to submit the question to the attorney general. The authorized requestor has the discretion to decide whether to ask for an attorney general opinion in any given instance.

Since the Hospital District is not authorized by law to request an opinion the request was sent to the County Attorney Andrew Lucas who said he would submit the request for the Hospital Dsitrict.

On the request itself, any person or entity who is interested in a pending opinion request may submit a brief within 20 days of the date the opinion request is received by the OAG (August 15, 2014 in this case). Briefs may be submitted through the electronic mail address opinion.committee@texasattorneygeneral.gov or via

Certified or registered mail:
Office of the Attorney General
Attention Opinion Committee
P.O. Box 12548
Austin, Texas 78711-2548

Note that briefs and any attachments submitted may be subject to public disclosure under the Public Information Act. The OAG is accepting briefs on this issue (RQ-1213-GA) until September 8, 2014.

@CC. I don't follow election law closely, but the Texas Secretary of State's office online would be the place to look for the schedules of elections.

@pstern - I'm sure you may know about this since you're on the AG mailing list, but the AG's office has agreed with Paul. -Two Years.
