Last week, the 4th Court of Appeals published the court’s mission statement. Some state agencies’ mission statements are provided by statute. See, e.g., Tex. Gov’t Code § 493.001 (statutorily providing TDCJ’s mission statement).
Chapter 22 of the Texas Government Code provides appellate courts’ functions, but does not provide a statutory mission statement for the values and vision in how appellate courts will strive to best fulfill their statutory functions.
