Ursula Parks, Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB1303 by Stephenson (Relating to the designation of a portion of State Highway 71 in Wharton County as the Roy P. Benavidez Memorial Highway.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to design, construct, and erect highway markers designating a portion of State Highway 71 as the Roy P. Benavidez Memorial Highway, subject to Section 225.021 (c), Transportation Code.
Section 225.021 (c), Transportation Code, specifies that TxDOT may not 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.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
