No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would repeal provisions in Chapter 222 of the Transportation Code relating to the authority of counties to create county energy transportation reinvestment zones (CETRZ). The bill would amend Subchapter C, Chapter 256, Transportation Code, to remove the requirement for a county to designate a CETRZ to participate in the Transportation Infrastructure Fund grant program from counties. The bill would take effect on December 31, 2017.
TxDOT indicates that any duties or responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be absorbed within the agency's existing resources.
