AUSTIN -- Governor Rick Perry's office Wednesday announced the board of the embattled Texas Youth Commission is expected to resign Friday.
Perry wants to replace the board with a full-time commissioner.
The Texas Senate earlier Wednesday voted to fire and replace the seven-member board amid the investigation of the alleged sexual abuse of some juvenile inmates.
Perry spokesman Ted Royers says having a full-time commissioner would give the TYC more accountability and oversight than a part-time volunteer board of directors.
Perry earlier this month appointed special master Jay Kimbrough to oversee a sweeping investigation of the agency.
