AUSTIN - The Alamo is under new management, and lawmakers want to know if the most iconic landmark in Texas is still in good hands.
It's been a year since the Texas Legislature tasked the state's General Land Office with overseeing the troubled caretakers for the Alamo. The agency is scheduled to brief lawmakers Thursday on the transition and the health of the Texas shrine.
The Daughters of the Republic of Texas have been stewards of the Alamo for more than a century. But the embattled nonprofit came under fire last year amid allegations of mismanagement.
The Daughters remain the caretakers, but the state has ramped up oversight of the group.
Changes are already happening. A private company took over the Alamo gift shop this month for the first time in history.
