Bill Analysis

HB 1681 would prohibit the construction of an assisted living facility within a 500-year floodplain if the facility: is located in a county with a population of 3.3 million or more (Harris County); is owned or operated by a commercial entity; and has two or more residents. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action opposes HB 1681 which is inconsistent with the principles of limited government, free markets, individual liberty, and private property rights.
