Note: SB 1771 is identical to HB 2617 which passed the house via the local and consent calendar on 4-25-13
Summary: This legislation would expand the Cibolo Creek Municipal Authority to encompass service areas in San Antonio, Schertz, Cibolo, Selma, Randolph Air Force Base, Live Oak, and Universal City.
Analysis: This bill would change the boundaries of the Authority which provides regional waste water services. The committee report states that this would allow residents currently receiving services, but outside the Authority's boundaries, to vote in Authority elections and have representation on the board of directors. This legislation benefits individual liberty to the extent that it grants voting rights to individuals served by the Cibolo Creek Municipal Authority but not currently able to vote on relevant to the Authority. We support SB 1771.
