Honorable Garnet Coleman, Chair, House Committee on County Affairs
Jerry McGinty, Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB504 by White (Relating to the sale of fireworks on and before the Juneteenth holiday in certain counties.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
This bill would amend the Occupations Code and the Local Government Code to allow county commissioners courts to provide for a Juneteenth fireworks season.
According to the Comptroller of Public Accounts, authorization of an additional period of fireworks sales could result in an incremental increase in sales of fireworks. No significant increase in sales tax revenues would be expected, as incremental sales of fireworks would likely be at the expense of other discretionary purchases of sales taxable items.
Local Government Impact
According to the Texas Association of Counties, no significant fiscal impact to counties is anticipated.
