thumb_Dan-FlynnAUSTIN — If University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers has his job after this week, he might have state lawmakers to thank — including a Republican from Van Zandt County. Outgoing UT System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa issued his first statement, calling his relationship with President Powers fractured and difficult — and he still plans to move forward with his plan for the Regents to decide Powers’s fate at their Thursday meeting. One problem is that state lawmakers are calling for Powers to stay — at least temporarily. House Transparency Committee co-chair Dan Flynn of Van says, “We’re still investigating it, we’re still working on issues, and we would still ask them not to make any major changes. The university has always worked with the Legislature, and I have no reason to believe that they won’t.”
