SB139 by Eltife (Relating to the designation of a segment of U.S. Highway 80 as the Sergeant Travis E. Watkins Memorial Highway.), As Engrossed
The bill would require the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to design, construct, and erect highway markers designating a segment of U.S. Highway 80 as the Sergeant Travis E. Watkins 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 analysis of 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.
