Bill Caption

Relating to the designation of certain river or stream segments as being of unique ecological value.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Under current law, the legislature is authorized to designate a river or stream segment of unique ecological value. Such a designation only prohibits a state entity from financing the construction of a reservoir in the segment. HB 1862 would designate parts of Alamito Creek, Black Cypress Bayou, Black Cypress Creek, and Terlingua Creek with unique ecological value.

Vote Recommendation Notes

HB 1862 neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
