Relating to the eligibility of certain events for funding under the
Major Events Reimbursement Program.
The fiscal implications of the bill cannot be determined at this time. The fiscal impact would depend on the
number and size of events covered under the bill
HB 3339 would add the Ladies Professional Golf Association Championship tournament, the Professional Golfers’ Association Championship, the Ryder Cup, and the Senior Professional Golfers’ Association Championship to the list of programs eligible for funding by the Major Events Reimbursement Program.
Texas Action is opposed to HB 3339 because it violates limited government and free market principles. This bill would add another event to the reimbursement program, through which it may receive public funds to subsidize events. A more limited government approach would be to eliminate the fund altogether and increase economic prosperity through lower spending and taxes, and less regulation.
