Bill Analysis

Quoting from the author's statement of intent:

"Interested parties note that Texans lost a valuable member of the law enforcement community with the death of Parks and Wildlife Department Game Warden Michael C. Pauling. These parties contend that Game Warden Pauling's selfless service in the United States armed forces, in the medical service corps, as a Texas game warden, and in the protection of the vulnerable should be honored with a tribute as outstanding and reputable as his career. H.B. 1963 seeks to provide tribute with a memorial highway."

Vote Recommendation Notes

We remain neutral on all legislation relating to memorials or honorariums. 

The second chamber sponsor of this legislation is Senator Creighton.
