Orr appointed to govt. accountability committee



Texas House Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, appointed state Rep. Rob Orr, R-Burleson, to the House Select Committee on Government Efficiency and Accountability.

Orr joins 10 other House members, a mix of Democrats and Republicans, on the committee.

“Texans deserve a government that makes the most effective and efficient use of limited tax dollars,” Straus said. “This committee will review our current operations, look at best practices, and recommend ways that state government can improve transparency and deliver better services at lower costs.”

The committee will review and make recommendations for eliminating inefficiencies in state government. They will also look for best practices in purchasing state goods and services and review the advantages and disadvantages of privatization.

“As a fiscal conservative, I believe it is important that the state of Texas routinely review its operations and look for ways to be better stewards of our citizen’s monies,” Orr said.

Sponsors, donations sought for CFA golf tournament



The Cleburne Firefighters Association is seeking hole sponsors and donations of cash, prizes and items for goodie bags to be distributed to players for their third annual golf tournament. They are also seeking players interested in participating in the tournament.

This year’s tournament will be held April 24 at Cleburne Golf Links. Tentative plans call for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start with lunch and a raffle after play completes.

CFA raised more than $9,000 last year, and hopes to surpass that mark this year. The organization, which has served the Cleburne community since 1919, donated more than $10,000 to local families and charities in 2009.
