HB1833 by Pickett (Relating to agreements of certain counties to acquire, construct, maintain, or operate a toll bridge.), As Engrossed
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would repeal Section 364.004(c), Transportation Code, to remove the bracketed population and authorize any county to enter into an agreement with a private entity or another governmental entity to acquire, construct, maintain, or operate a toll bridge.
Local Government Impact
There could be costs associated with agreement; however, it is assumed that a county would enter into such agreements only if sufficient funds were available.
