Bill Caption

Relating to the enforcement of commercial motor vehicle safety standards in certain municipalities.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 636 would allow police officers of municipalities with a population of less than 75,000 that are located in three counties, at least one of which with a population greater than 3.3 million, to apply for certification to enforce commercial vehicle safety standards. This would effectively allow peace officers in Katy, Texas, to enforce these standards.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on this bill as it does not have any direct impact upon our liberty principles.
