SB283 by Estes (Relating to the number of members of the Texas Historical Commission.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Government Code to reduce the number of commission members on the Texas Historical Commission from 17 to nine members. The bill could result in a minimal savings to the agency as a result of fewer travel reimbursement payments. However, it is anticipated that any additional savings associated with implementation of the bill would not be significant.
The bill would take effect immediately if it receives a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
