Bill Analysis

Note: SB 1411 is nearly identical to HB 2330 which we supported earlier this session.

Summary of Legislation: This legislation is bracketed for Henderson & Kaufman County.  It allows the commissioners court to enter into a contract with a conservation and reclamation district for the purpose of obtaining traffic enforcement capabilities on their roads.  Upon approval of such a contract the county commissioners are obligated to develop and disseminate traffic control rules for the appropriate roads.

Analysis: This bill would allow traffic control decisions to be made at what is generally the appropriate level of government.
