DALLAS -- A lawmaker has revived a proposal to merge Texas' largest debt issuer with the state agency that reviews bonds.

State Rep. Sylvia Romo, D-San Antonio, submitted House Bill 152 in a pre-session filing of a proposal that calls for creation of an Office of Debt Management, which would merge the functions of the Bond Review Board and the Texas Public Finance Authority. The bill will be formally introduced when the new legislative session begins Jan. 10.
