Lt. Governor Patrick Announces Oversight Board Appointments


AUSTIN – Today, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick announced the following appointments to the Economic Incentive Oversight Board:

  • Windi Grimes – an investments executive in Houston, TX.
  • Bill Lavers – Executive Director of the Development Corporation of Snyder, TX.

The Economic Incentive Oversight Board examines the effectiveness and efficiency of programs and funds administered by the office of the governor, comptroller, or Department of Agriculture that award state monetary or tax incentives to business entities and other persons.

“When voters elected us to office,” Patrick said , “they sent us to Austin with a very clear message. They expect us to spend every dollar prudently and to make sure any Texas incentives or grants are wisely made. These two appointees will serve as our watchdogs to make sure that happens.”
