  COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR S.B. No. 379 By:  Schwertner
 
 
A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 
AN ACT
 
  relating to eminent domain reporting requirements for certain
  entities.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Section 2206.154, Government Code, is amended by
  amending Subsection (a) and adding Subsection (b-1) to read as
  follows:
         (a)  Except as provided by Subsections [Subsection] (b) and
  (b-1), not later than February 1 of each year, an entity described
  by Section 2206.151 shall submit to the comptroller a report
  containing records and other information specified by this
  subchapter for the purpose of providing the comptroller with
  information to maintain the eminent domain database under Section
  2206.153.  The entity shall submit the report in a form and in the
  manner prescribed by the comptroller.
         (b-1)  A public school district located in a county with a
  population of less than 25,000 is required to file an annual report
  under Subsection (a) only if the district's eminent domain
  authority information has changed from the information reported in
  the most recent report filed by the district under this section. If
  for the current annual reporting period the district's eminent
  domain authority information is the same as the information
  reflected for the district in the eminent domain database for the
  previous annual reporting period, the district, not later than
  February 1 of the current annual reporting period, shall confirm
  the accuracy of the information by electronically updating the
  district's previously filed report with the comptroller in the
  manner prescribed by the comptroller.
         SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2017.
