Bill Caption

Relating to expedited proceedings in cases involving dangerously damaged or deteriorated or substandard buildings or improvements in a municipality.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 36 would require courts to expedite any proceedings related to a suit brought for the enforcement of an ordinance relating to dangerously damaged or deteriorated structures or improvements. It would also allow a person to appeal an interlocutory order (a ruling by a trial court that is made before the trial itself has concluded) if the court denied a motion filed by a governmental entity in actions related to such structures or improvements. The appellate court shall render its final order or judgment with the least possible delay.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action is neutral on HB 36 because it is procedural and neither advances nor hinders any of our liberty principles.
