AUSTIN, Texas – Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan today established the Investigative Committee on the Robb Elementary Shooting to conduct an examination into the circumstances surrounding the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

 

“The fact we still do not have an accurate picture of what exactly happened in Uvalde is an outrage,” said Speaker Dade Phelan. “Every day, we receive new information that conflicts with previous reports, making it not only difficult for authorities to figure out next steps, but for the grieving families of the victims to receive closure. I established this investigative committee for the dedicated purpose of gathering as much information and evidence as possible to help inform the House’s response to this tragedy and deliver desperately needed answers to the people of Uvalde and the State of Texas.”

 

The following individuals have been appointed to the committee:

 

  • Rep. Dustin Burrows, Chair
  • Rep. Joe Moody, Vice Chair
  • The Honorable Eva Guzman, Member

 

Speaker Phelan added, “these individuals possess decades of experience in civil and criminal litigation matters – skill sets I believe make them best equipped to meet the objectives of this committee and its investigation. I know each of them to be diligent, thorough, and focused professionals whom I trust will do everything in their power to deliver facts and answers at a time when they are needed most.”

 

The investigative committee, which possesses the power of subpoena and is authorized to conduct depositions and initiate discovery, has been tasked with collecting and analyzing evidence from law enforcement, making comprehensive findings, and reporting its conclusions as soon as possible to help inform the work of the House.

 

In addition to the formation of this new investigative committee, Speaker Phelan also issued a series of joint charges to the Select Committee on Youth Health & Safety and Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee. Six additional House members have been appointed to the Select Committee on Youth Health & Safety – five of whom represent cities that have experienced a mass shooting in recent years. The following members have received appointments:

 

  • Rep. Greg Bonnen (representing Santa Fe)
  • Rep. Mary Gonzalez (representing El Paso)
  • Rep. Tracy King (representing Uvalde)
  • Rep. John Kuempel (representing Sutherland Springs)
  • Rep. Brooks Landgraf (representing Odessa)

 

Rep. Drew Darby has also been appointed to serve on this committee, as he recently served as the Chair of the House Select Committee on Mass Violence Prevention & Community Safety, which was formed in the 86th Legislature to study the occurrence, impact, and prevention of mass violence in the State of Texas.
