Relating to use of funds collected by the Parks and Wildlife Commission from the sale of certain materials.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.


Bill Analysis

Currently, the Parks and Wildlife Code requires compensation for loss of public natural resources through payment of royalties on the sale of certain materials. HB 1824 would allow the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission to use royalties collected from the excavation of sand, gravel, marl, shell, and mudshell from public waters to support enhancement, preservation, and restoration of fish habitats in rivers and streams. This adds to the allowable use of the royalties, but does not increase the amount of royalties. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 1824 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
