Bill Caption

Relating to certain offenses relating to disturbing or taking marl, sand, gravel, shell, or mudshell or disturbing oyster beds or fishing waters; increasing the criminal penalty.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 2038 would increase the penalty for violating the prohibition against a person disturbing or taking marl, sand, gravel, shell, or mudshell under the management and protection of the Parks and Wildlife Commission, or operating in or disturbing any oyster bed or fishing water for any purpose other than that necessary or incidental to navigation or dredging under state or federal authority, without a permit authorizing the activity. It would increase from a Class C to a Class B Parks and Wildlife Code misdemeanor.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral HB 2038 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
