providing authority to issue bonds; providing authority to impose

HB 4674 would create the Chambers County Municipal Utility District No. 2, subject to municipal consent and voter approval at a confirmation election. The bill would grant the district the power to undertake certain road projects, issue obligations, and impose certain taxes. The bill, if it does not receive a two-thirds vote of all members of each house, would prohibit the district from exercising the power of eminent domain.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 4674 as it does not affect our liberty principles.
