Bill Caption

Relating to a biennial report on stormwater infrastructure in this state.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Under current law, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is required to file a biennial report with the governor and legislature outlining commission activities and recommendations. SB 2026 would also require the inclusion of details, recommendations, goals, and progress concerning green stormwater infrastructure (which reduces and treats stormwater at the source through natural processes). Each biennium, the TCEQ would be required to appoint a Green Stormwater Infrastructure and Low Impact Development Report Group to create this report.

Vote Recommendation Notes

SB 2026 neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
