Bill Analysis

HB 4305 is a bracketed bill to allow certain municipalities in Presidio and Jeff Davis counties to use hotel occupancy tax revenue towards dark sky infrastructure. The bill would also allow the City of Brownsville to use hotel occupancy tax revenue for certain projects. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action opposes the use of hotel occupancy taxes to promote economic development, tourism, and other such purposes, therefore we oppose HB 4305.
