Texas House panel set to vote on Hall impeachment

Posted: Updated:
A group of state lawmakers have spent months investigating University of Texas System Regent Wallace Hall's efforts to oust the president of the Austin campus.

Now, the House Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations will meet Monday to vote on whether Hall's conduct in pursuing evidence against University of Texas President Bill Powers warrants a recommendation that he be impeached.

A vote in favor would set the Legislature on course toward the first direct removal from office of a governor-appointed official in state history.

There have been very few impeachment trials in state history and only two have been successful: Gov. James "Pa" Ferguson in 1917 and a district judge in 1975.
