The Longest Day
I’ve been going over the prefiled amendments packet–very thick–for HB 1, and here are some things to look for. If you are wondering what what might happen to Tx-DOT (many hours away) here are the key amendments:
Van Arsdale moves the agency’s entire budget to Article XI, the wish list.
Martinez-Fischer bars Tx-DOT from entering into any contract that includes a noncompete contract and prohibits any funds to be spent to honor such a contract.
Farias would limit any contract to 25 years in length.
