AUSTIN, Texas - The chairmen of the Texas House panel considering impeachment charges against a University of Texas System regent say they won't vote for several more weeks.
The Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations met Wednesday to begin drafting impeachment charges against Wallace Hall. Panel leaders said they won't vote before their July 7 meeting.
The panel has already agreed that grounds to impeach Hall exist and now must draft formal charges. If approved by the full House, they would be sent to the Senate for a trial that could ultimately remove Hall from office.
Hall has been accused of abusing the powers of his office and possibly breaking student privacy laws in his efforts to oust Austin campus President Bill Powers.
Hall denies any wrongdoing or breaking the law.
