SJR21 by Lucio (Proposing a constitutional amendment authorizing the legislature to provide for the issuance of bonds for improvements to the state highway system.), As Introduced
The cost to the state for publication of the resolution is $85,275.
The resolution would propose a constitutional amendment to authorize the Texas Transportation Commission to issue bonds and enter into bond enhancement agreements payable from revenues received from the Federal Highway Trust Fund and other revenue deposited to the credit of the State Highway Fund. The resolution would establish requirements and guidelines for annual debt service on specific bonds and would appropriate an amount each fiscal year from eligible revenue sufficient to pay any outstanding principal, interest, and bond-related costs eligible for reimbursement under federal law.
Costs related to the enactment of this resolution are provided in the cost estimate for the enabling legislation.
The proposed amendment would be submitted to voters during the election to be held November 4, 2003.
