The Sunset Advisory Commission performs regular assessments of the necessity and cost-effectiveness of a state agency or program. The point is not to measure compliance with legislative regulation, but to determine whether an agency is still needed. The process works by setting an automatic end (or, sunset) date on which a given agency or program will be abolished unless bills are passed to continue them. This process can create a powerful incentive for stakeholders and the Legislature to learn about, and understand each of these agencies and troubleshoot methods to make them more effective. Therefore, more necessary.
