Gov. Rick Perry named two new members and one re-appointment to the University of Texas System Board of Regents Thursday.

Once confirmed by the Senate, Ernest Aliseda of McAllen and Jeff Hildebrand of Houston will replace James Dannenbaum and Printice Gary, whose terms were scheduled to expire this month.

Aliseda is the managing attorney for Loya Incurance Group and a municipal judge. He graduated from Texas A&M University. Hildebrand is chairman and CEO of Hilcorp Energy Company and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers. He received both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from the University of Texas.

The third appointment, Paul Foster, is currently a sitting member of the board. All three will serve six-year terms, set to expire in 2019.

The appointments come as the board faces new scrutiny from Texas lawmakers. Wednesday, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst called for a joint committee of higher education lawmakers to investigate the board of regents.

The Joint Committee on Oversight of Higher Education Governance, Excellence & Transparency will be co-chaired by Sen. Kel Seliger and Rep. Dan Branch. No date has been set for hearings to begin, but the committee would have subpoena power and could bring in sitting regents for testimony. Dewhurst has alluded to personal attacks on Powers and his family by the regents.
