Relating to the allocation of certain state hotel occupancy tax revenue.
Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for SB1719, Committee
Report 1st House, Substituted: an impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2021.
SB 1719 would temporarily authorize certain counties along the coast to use up to two percent of hotel occupancy tax revenue for the Coastal Erosion Response Account to benefit those coastal counties.
Texas Action is neutral on SB 1719 because it does not affect our liberty principles. Although we generally oppose increasing or establishing a hotel occupancy tax, this bill would allow for the temporary allocation of funds from current hotel occupancy tax revenue for a legitimate government function.
