Joint Legislative Oversight and Sunset Committee

General Info

The Joint Sunset Committee, as of January 2017, is the Joint Legislative Oversight and Sunset Committee (JLOSC). JLOSC performs periodic legislative review of entities, commissions, or boards. The purpose of the review is to determine whether or not there is a genuine public need for the entity and, if so, determine if the entity is effectively performing to meet that need. The purpose of this chapter is not to terminate entities which are sufficiently meeting a recognized State need and which are accountable to and responsive to the public interests.  Rather, the purpose is to use the review mechanism to strengthen and support these entities. 

The Joint Legislative Oversight and Sunset Committee is responsible for guiding the review process. JLOSC is a 10-member legislative body composed of 5 members of the Senate appointed by the President Pro Tempore; and 5 members of the House of Representatives appointed by the Speaker of the House. Staff support for JLOSC is provided by the Division of Research
