The bill would allow local governments to donate funds, property, and services to the Texas Military Department. The bill would require that employees of local governments who are also members of the Texas military or a search and rescue team be given paid leave of absence for the period in which the employee is engaged in military duties. The bill would establish a county emergency board to fill a draft if necessary. Costs to local governments would vary depending on future emergencies but are not anticipated to be significant.
