Bill Caption

Relating to a historic structure assistance program operated by a municipally owned utility in certain municipalities; authorizing a fee.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 1670 would allow a municipally owned utility in Brownsville to charge a historic structure fee of no more than $1 a month to maintain and operate the utility systems of certain historic structures. An election would be required to approve the fee.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This is a local and permissive bill that would only affect the City of Brownsville, therefore we remain neutral on SB 1670.
