Bill Caption

Relating to the disposition of fines for traffic violations collected by certain municipalities.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 297 would allow the City of Martindale to continue counting revenue generated by utility companies within the municipality as municipal revenue until 2031 (extended from 2021). This extends a workaround that helps the city defer payment of certain debts to the state. This bill addresses a complex issue that is apparently unique to the Martindale. For detailed background, see the bill author's statement of purpose

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on SB 297 as it does not directly impact any of our liberty principles.
