No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Texas Action recommends supporting HB 347 because it promotes our principles of property rights, limited government, and individual liberty. This bill would give all citizens the right to vote on whether they want to be incorporated into a neighboring city, remedying a grave injustice. No citizen should be deprived of their liberty without political representation.
Citizens who prefer fewer services and smaller government live outside of municipalities for a reason. Under current law, the two-tier system treats property owners differently, which is unfair. This bill would restore fairness so that the people's right to vote and protect their property from forced annexation is statewide.
