Bill Caption

Relating to the power of certain counties to enact park use rules.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

HB 510 would allow certain counties with jurisdiction over a park to create "reasonable rules" concerning the use of the park, and would allow them to enforce those rules with a Class C misdemeanor penalty. This may include hours of operation, glass bottle use, preserving vegetation, and/or protection of historical monuments, among other things.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 510 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
