Senate Research Center H.B. 2278
AUTHOR'S / SPONSOR'S STATEMENT OF INTENT
The Texas Legislative Council is required by law to carry out a complete nonsubstantive revision of the Texas statutes. The process involves reclassifying and rearranging the statutes in a more logical order; employing a numbering system and format that will accommodate future expansion of the law; eliminating repealed, invalid, duplicative, and other ineffective provisions; and improving the draftsmanship of law if practicable. These efforts are carried out in order to make the statutes more accessible, understandable, and usable without altering the sense, meaning, or effect of the law.
H.B. 2278 makes nonsubstantive revisions to certain laws concerning business and commerce, including conforming amendments.
