No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in consultation with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), to conduct a study assessing the statewide need for the replacement of fallen or damaged mile markers on interstate highways where mile markers are required to be installed under state or federal guidelines. The bill would require TxDOT to submit a report on the results of the study to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the House, and the presiding officers of the House and Senate committees with jurisdiction over transportation matters.
