Relating to rates established by municipalities for water and sewer
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 2322 would prohibit a municipality or municipally owned utility from engaging in "rate discrimination" by charging a higher utility rate to tax exempt or nonprofit entities than the rate for other entities that receive comparable utility services.
Texas Action recommends supporting SB 2322 which is in alignment with our limited government and property rights principles. Municipal utilities should not target tax exempt organizations to extract higher fees from them.
