Relating to the permissible uses of the floodplain management account.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Under current law, the Texas Water Development Board is authorized to use the floodplain management account to assist political subdivisions endeavoring to qualify for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. HB 3746 would also authorize the board to use the fund to study and create programs to educate the public regarding flood-related information as well as perform other activities related to flood planning, protection, mitigation, and adaptation.

Vote Recommendation Notes

HB 3746 neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
