SB1334 by Hinojosa (Relating to the allocation categories for state funding of public transportation.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend Chapter 456 of the Transportation Code to define urbanized areas under the current state funded public transportation grant program as "large urbanized area" for an area with a population of 200,000 or more and "small urbanized area" for an urbanized area with a population less than 200,000.
Based on the information provided by the Texas Department of Transportation, it is assumed any costs or duties associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be absorbed within existing resources.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
