AUSTIN (AP) - A Texas House committee is meeting to scrutinize how state DNA testing is performed and consider certifying additional DNA testing centers.

The House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee has invited experts to speak on DNA testing Tuesday as part of its effort to study the process and make recommendations.

The committee is chaired by Democratic Rep. Pete Gallego of Alpine, and its efforts are among the interim charges released last month by House Speaker Joe Straus, a Republican.

Straus’ charges shape lawmakers’ work over coming months with an eye toward legislation the House may consider when the Legislature reconvenes in January 2012.
