HB1238 by Price (Relating to the designation of a portion of U.S. Highway 287 in Sherman and Dallam Counties as the Trooper Bobby Steve Booth Memorial Highway.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
The bill would require the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to design, construct, and erect highway markers designating a segment of U.S. Highway 287 as the Trooper Bobby Steve Booth Memorial Highway, subject to Section 225.021 (c), Transportation Code.
Section 225.021 (c), Transportation Code, specifies that TxDOT is not required to design, construct, or erect the marker unless a grant or donation of funds is made to the department to cover the cost. Based on the information provided by TxDOT, it is assumed any duties associated with the implementation of the provisions of the bill could be absorbed within the agency's existing resources.
