TxDOT invites the public to attend a public meeting of TxDOT’s Port Authority Advisory Committee.


The Transportation Commission appoints seven members to the committee with staggered three-year terms unless removed sooner at the discretion of the commission. The commission appoints one member from the Port of Houston Authority of Harris County, three members from ports located on the upper Texas coast and three members from ports located on the lower Texas coast. Additionally, the Lt. Governor and the Speaker of the House each appoint a member bringing the total committee membership to nine.

The committee provides a forum for the exchange of information between the Transportation Commission, TxDOT and committee members representing the port industry in Texas and others who have an interest in ports.  The committee's advice and recommendations provide the commission and the department with a broad perspective regarding ports and transportation-related matters to be considered in formulating department policies concerning the Texas port system.
