AUSTIN — Today, Land Commissioner George P. Bush released the below statement following the Alamo Management Committee's unanimous passage of the Alamo plan. The management committee has provided day to day oversight of the development of the Alamo plan and is comprised of representatives appointed by the San Antonio Mayor, General Land Office and Alamo Endowment fund.

"Today's vote by the Alamo Management Committee brings the Alamo one step closer to restoring its former glory," said Commissioner Bush. "The Alamo is a symbol known across Texas as a beacon of liberty and freedom from an oppressive government. In 2015, the Texas Legislature mandated the General Land Office enter into an agreement with the City of San Antonio to coordinate the improvement of the Alamo complex. Making good on this directive, the Alamo preservation plan will repair and preserve the Alamo, restoring reverence to the land the defenders gave their lives upon. I look forward to voting with the Mayor on this plan and will move quickly in adherence with the Management Committee's suggested dates. This plan is four years in the making and its goal is for all Texans to Remember the Alamo."
