A study on Brenham State School operations and spending, recommends that it look into independent living for its clients.
The study was conducted by a 26-member task force, which state representative Lois Kolkhorst created.
The task force urged the Brenham State School to think of building on-site housing for independent living. Superintendent Rick Browder said the recommendation is worth exploring.
In the meantime, state legislators are waiting on a final report by the Health and Human Services Commission, which was asked to look into cost saving measures and the possible closure of state schools and hospitals.
