  39.9052, and 39.914(e), does not apply to a municipally owned
  utility or an electric cooperative. Sections 39.157(e), 39.203, and
  39.904, however, apply only to a municipally owned utility or an
  electric cooperative that is offering customer choice. If there is
  a conflict between the specific provisions of this chapter and any
  other provisions of this title, except for Chapters 40 and 41, the
  provisions of this chapter control.
         SECTION 16.002.  Section 39.352(g), Utilities Code, is
  amended to correct a reference to read as follows:
         (g)  If a retail electric provider serves an aggregate load
  in excess of 300 megawatts within this state, not less than five
  percent of the load in megawatt hours must consist of residential
  customers. This requirement applies to an affiliated retail
  electric provider only with respect to load served outside of the
  electric utility's service area, and, in relation to that load, the
  affiliated retail electric provider shall meet the requirements of
  this subsection by serving residential customers outside of the
  electric utility's service area. For the purpose of this
  subsection, the load served by retail electric providers that are
  under common ownership shall be combined. A retail electric
  provider may meet the requirements of this subsection by
  demonstrating on an annual basis that it serves residential load
  amounting to five percent of its total load or[,] by demonstrating
  that another retail electric provider serves sufficient qualifying
  residential load on its behalf[, or by paying an amount into the
  system benefit fund equal to $1 multiplied by a number equal to the
  difference between the number of megawatt hours it sold to
  residential customers and the number of megawatt hours it was
  required to sell to such customers, or in the case of an affiliated
  retail electric provider, $1 multiplied by a number equal to the
  difference between the number of megawatt hours sold to residential
  customers outside of the electric utility's service area and the
  number of megawatt hours it was required to sell to such customers
  outside of the electric utility's service area]. Qualifying
  residential load may not include customers served by an affiliated
  retail electric provider in its own service area. Each retail
  electric provider shall file reports with the commission that are
  necessary to implement this subsection. This subsection applies
  for 36 months after retail competition begins. The commission
  shall adopt rules to implement this subsection.
         SECTION 16.003.  Section 39.905(f), Utilities Code, is
  amended to correct a reference to read as follows:
         (f)  Each [Unless funding is provided under Section 39.903,
  each] unbundled transmission and distribution utility shall
  include in its energy efficiency plan a targeted low-income energy
  efficiency program [as described by Section 39.903(f)(2)], and the
  savings achieved by the program shall count toward the transmission
  and distribution utility's energy efficiency goal. The commission
  shall determine the appropriate level of funding to be allocated to
  both targeted and standard offer low-income energy efficiency
  programs in each unbundled transmission and distribution utility
  service area. The level of funding for low-income energy
  efficiency programs shall be provided from money approved by the
  commission for the transmission and distribution utility's energy
  efficiency programs. The commission shall ensure that annual
  expenditures for the targeted low-income energy efficiency
  programs of each unbundled transmission and distribution utility
  are not less than 10 percent of the transmission and distribution
  utility's energy efficiency budget for the year. A targeted
  low-income energy efficiency program must comply with the same
  audit requirements that apply to federal weatherization
  subrecipients. In an energy efficiency cost recovery factor
  proceeding related to expenditures under this subsection, the
  commission shall make findings of fact regarding whether the
  utility meets requirements imposed under this subsection. The
  state agency that administers the federal weatherization
  assistance program shall participate in energy efficiency cost
  recovery factor proceedings related to expenditures under this
  subsection to ensure that targeted low-income weatherization
  programs are consistent with federal weatherization programs and
  adequately funded.
         SECTION 16.004.  Section 40.001(a), Utilities Code, is
  amended to correct a reference to read as follows:

  Sections 39.155, 39.157(e), 39.203, [39.903,] and 39.904, this
  chapter governs the transition to and the establishment of a fully
  competitive electric power industry for municipally owned
  utilities. With respect to the regulation of municipally owned
  utilities, this chapter controls over any other provision of this
  title, except for sections in which the term "municipally owned
  utility" is specifically used.
         SECTION 16.005.  Section 40.004, Utilities Code, is amended
  to correct a reference to read as follows:

  to the extent provided by Chapter 37;
               (3)  to regulate rates on appeal under Subchapters D
  and E, Chapter 33, subject to Section 40.051(c);
               (4)  to establish a code of conduct as provided by
  Section 39.157(e) applicable to anticompetitive activities and to
  affiliate activities limited to structurally unbundled affiliates
  of municipally owned utilities, subject to Section 40.054;
               (5)  to establish terms and conditions for open access
  to transmission and distribution facilities for municipally owned
  utilities providing customer choice, as provided by Section 39.203;

  established under Section 39.903(b) and] to administer the
  renewable energy credits program under Section 39.904(b) and the
  natural gas energy credits program under Section 39.9044(b); and
               (7)  to require reports of municipally owned utility
  operations only to the extent necessary to:
                     (A)  enable the commission to determine the
  aggregate load and energy requirements of the state and the
  resources available to serve that load; or
                     (B)  enable the commission to determine

  [39.903,] and 39.904, this chapter governs the transition to and
  the establishment of a fully competitive electric power industry
  for electric cooperatives. Regarding the regulation of electric
  cooperatives, this chapter shall control over any other provision
  of this title, except for sections in which the term "electric
  cooperative" is specifically used.
  ARTICLE 17. CHANGES RELATING TO WATER CODE
         SECTION 17.001.  Section 11.122(b-1), Water Code, as added
  by Chapter 1097 (H.B. 3735), Acts of the 85th Legislature, Regular
  Session, 2017, is repealed as duplicative of Section 11.122(b-1),
  Water Code, as added by Chapter 429 (S.B. 1430), Acts of the 85th
  Legislature, Regular Session, 2017.
         SECTION 17.002.  Section 54.016(a), Water Code, as amended
  by Chapters 761 (S.B. 1987) and 965 (S.B. 2014), Acts of the 85th
  Legislature, Regular Session, 2017, is reenacted to read as
  follows:
         (a)  No land within the corporate limits of a city or within
  the extraterritorial jurisdiction of a city, shall be included in a
  district unless the city grants its written consent, by resolution
  or ordinance, to the inclusion of the land within the district in
  accordance with Section 42.042, Local Government Code, and this
  section. The request to a city for its written consent to the
  creation of a district, shall be signed by a majority in value of
  the holders of title of the land within the proposed district as
  indicated by the county tax rolls. A petition for the written
  consent of a city to the inclusion of land within a district shall
  describe the boundaries of the land to be included in the district
  by metes and bounds or by lot and block number, if there is a
  recorded map or plat and survey of the area, and state the general
  nature of the work proposed to be done, the necessity for the work,
  and the cost of the project as then estimated by those filing the
  petition. If, at the time a petition is filed with a city for
  creation of a district, the district proposes to connect to a city's
  water or sewer system or proposes to contract with a regional water
  and wastewater provider which has been designated as such by the
  commission as of the date such petition is filed, to which the city
  has made a capital contribution for the water and wastewater
  facilities serving the area, the proposed district shall be
  designated as a "city service district." If such proposed district
  does not meet the criteria for a city service district at the time
  the petition seeking creation is filed, such district shall be
  designated as a "noncity service district." The city's consent
  shall not place any restrictions or conditions on the creation of a
  noncity service district as defined by this chapter other than
  those expressly provided in Subsection (e) of this section and
  shall specifically not limit the amounts of the district's bonds. A
  city may not require annexation as a consent to creation of any
  district. A city shall not refuse to approve a district bond issue
  for any reason except that the district is not in compliance with
  valid consent requirements applicable to the district. If a city
  grants its written consent without the concurrence of the applicant
  to the creation of a noncity service district containing conditions
  or restrictions that the petitioning land owner or owners
  reasonably believe exceed the city's powers, such land owner or
  owners may petition the commission to create the district and to
  modify the conditions and restrictions of the city's consent. The
  commission may declare any provision of the consent to be null and
  void. The commission may approve the creation of a district that
  includes any portion of the land covered by the city's consent to
  creation of the district. The legislature may create and may
  validate the creation of a district that includes any portion of the
  land covered by the city's consent to the creation of the district.
         SECTION 17.003.  Section 62.153, Water Code, as amended by
  Chapters 398 (S.B. 1131) and 427 (S.B. 1395), Acts of the 85th
  Legislature, Regular Session, 2017, is reenacted to read as
  follows:

  the commission, any two members of the commission, or the
  commissioners court, or any two of any number of persons delegated
  by the commission with authority to sign vouchers, provided that
  the commission may, in such delegation, limit the authority of such
  persons and may require that each furnish a fidelity bond in such
  amount as the commission shall specify and subject to commission
  approval;
               (3)  carefully preserve all orders for the payment of
  money;
               (4)  render a correct account to the commissioners

  depository selected under Section 62.156, unless the district
  treasurer is the designated officer of the district, as defined by
  Section 60.271(g).
         (b)  A designated officer of a district may make a payment on
  behalf of the district by a check drawn on a depository selected
