Relating to the award of library construction grants by the Texas
State Library and Archives Commission.
The bill would result in an indeterminate cost to the state. The bill authorizes the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to award library construction grants, the costs of which would be dependent on future appropriations by the legislature.
HB 1381 would allow the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to award library construction grants to establish new public libraries or improve existing public libraries.
Texas Action opposes HB 1381 which violates our limited government principle by allowing the state to fund libraries which should be funded locally.
