HB 1449 passes Texas Senate

TAB and HBA priority legislation HB 1449, which would prohibit cities from charging what’s known as a “linkage fee” passed the Texas Senate on May 18, 2017 with one clarifying amendment. Now that the bill has passed both houses, it will go back to the House for concurrence with the clarifying amendment and then Governor Abbott’s desk for his signature.
