The Issues

Legislative Accomplishments of the 85th Session

STATE BUDGET

Total Budget: $216.8 billion for fiscal years 2018 and 2019, which is an increase of .2% from the previous biennium, well below the combined rates of increases in population and inflation.

Healthcare: $79.5 billion, which includes $3.3 billion for behavioral health, an increase of $334.3 million from the previous biennium for mental health services.

Education: $80.4 billion, covering the full cost of enrollment growth.

Border Protection: $800 million provided for border protection to maintain current patrols and hire additional state troopers.

Pro Life: Defunded Planned Parenthood and provided greater support to programs that focus on alternatives to abortion. The 2018-2019 budget increased funding for the Alternatives to Abortion program from 18.3 million to 38.3 million.

Teacher Retirement System: State contribution increased by $350 million in addition to policy changes that were necessary to make sure TRS continues in operation for future generations of teachers.

INVESTING IN OUR CHILDREN

Education remained a top priority during the 85th Legislative Session for the Texas House. The legislature passed House Bill 21 that provides a total of $311 million for the 2018-2019 biennium:

o $150 million for the Hardship Grant, a glide path to help school districts with financial hardship and the expiration of Additional State Aid for Tax Relief (ASATR);

o $60 million for the buy down of the Existing Debt Allotment (EDA);

o $60 million for Charter Facilities Funding for qualifying charter schools; and

o $41 million for the Small District Adjustment to include districts that are under 300 square miles

House Bill 21 also adds an additional $212 million to buy down premiums for TRS-Care or to assist those under TRS-Care in caring for their adult dependents with special needs. Finally, the bill sets aside $40 million from the Foundation School Program (FSP) to establish innovative grant programs for students with autism and students with dyslexia.

FIGHTING FOR OUR LOCAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITY

No funding was provided in the Senate’s introduced budget bill forany of Lamar University, Lamar State College - Orange, Lamar State College - Port Arthur or Lamar Institute of Tecjnology’s “special items”. Under this scenario, each of the Lamar campuses would be forced to use other resources to fund a phase-out period. Similar actions would have taken place had the Senate’s March funding proposal been adopted. In either case, elimination of most, if not all, of the activities funded by these non-formula appropriations would have taken place during the upcoming biennium.

Thanks to your Texas House of Representatives and to the House Appropriations on which I serve, all of these items were funded:

Lamar University

o Academy in Humanities

o Hazardous Substance Research Center

o Air Quality Initiative

o Center for Advances in the Study of Port Management

o Center for Water and Air Quality

o Spindletop Museum Educational Activity

o Small Business Development Center

o Community Outreach Expansion

o Spindletop Teaching Center

Lamar Institute of Technology

o Workforce Literacy, Training and Education

Lamar State College – Port Arthur

o Vo-Tech and HVAC Program

o Small Business Development Center

Lamar State College – Orange

o Allied Health Program

- Maritime Technology Program

CPS REFORM

Leading up to the 85th Session, reports were distributed on the state’s child welfare system. Children under the state’s custody were forced to sleep in state offices due to a lack of approved foster families with the ability to take children in.

In response, the legislature increased funding to provide for more caseworkers and increase payments to keep quality foster care families in the system and work to keep children in homes with biological family members where possible. Additionally, CPS has been reformed with greater oversight in order to prevent such tragedies from ever happening again.

CHURCH SECURITY ACT

SB 2065 Amendment 6 (Joint Author) - Amendment 6 to S.B. 2065 amends the Occupations Code to exempt a person who is providing volunteer security services on the premises of a church, synagogue, or other established place of religious worship from the Private Security Act. The bill prohibits such a person from wearing a uniform or badge that contains the word "security" or that gives the person the appearance of being a peace officer, personal protection officer, or security officer.

PRO LIFE VICTORIES

During both the regular session and special session, the sanctity of life remained a top priority for the 85th Legislature with the passage of numerous pieces of pro-life legislation.

Senate Bill 8 bans partial-birth abortions and prohibits the sale of fetal tissues and organs. While partial-birth abortions are banned by federal law, state prosecutors cannot enforce federal law. This provides an enforcement mechanism for Texas to prosecute those who perform partial-birth abortions.

House Bill 214 Removes mandatory coverage for elective abortions from health insurance plans, regardless of whether it is a government plan or a private plan. H.B. 214 also allows for optional elective abortion coverage through the purchase of a separate plan. Through this bill, Texas joins 25 other states that currently limit coverage for abortions in health insurance.

House Bill 215 creates two new reporting requirements for minors seeking abortions:

- Requires physicians to document and report the method by which a minor obtained authorization for an abortion.

- If obtained by parental consent, whether the parent was present at the time of consent, and

-If obtained by judicial authorization, the physician's role in facilitating the minor's appearance before the court.

SECURING OUR TEXAS BORDER

Due to the continuing crisis on the Texas/Mexico border, the Legislature maintained a funding level of $800 million for border security. This accounts for 250 new troopers to expand operations along the border and 50-hour workweek for all DPS troopers statewide.

The budget also includes $19,119,396 for 2018 and $13,898,396 for 2019 for Texas Game Wardens border operations. Given their extensive training, our Wardens serve as the frontline at the border crossing along the Rio Grande River. These funds also account for $4,000,000 to replace a 65-foot offshore law enforcement vessel.

BANNING SANCTUARY CITIES

Senate Bill 4 - Strengthens State sovereignty in enforcing immigration law by creating penalties for local entities and campus police departments who adopt or enforce policy which prohibits enforcement of immigration laws.

· Individuals found acting against immigration law are liable to a financial penalty ranging from $1000 to $25,500 depending on the number of offenses. All penalties are deposited in the Compensation to Victims of Crime account.

· Allows the Attorney General to petition for the removal of a violating public official from office.

· Creates a grant program in the Office of the Governor to provide assistance to offset costs for full immigration enforcement.

DEFENDING OUR SECOND AMENDMENT

Senate Bill 16 expands Texans' Second Amendment rights by lowering the Texas License to Carry and application fee so as not to place an undo financial burden on Texans' constitutional right. The price for an application is lowered from $140 to $40 and from $100 to $40 for renewals. To be eligible for a handgun license in the state of Texas, citizens must pass state and federal background checks, pass an educational course, demonstrate shooting proficiency, and be 21 years of age or older.

RED SNAPPER FISHING

Decades of federal mismanagement have hurt private recreational anglers, and this year, we’ve been informed that the red snapper season will be a total of three days long and allow for anglers to keep six fish. That is why I joint-authored HCR 105, encouraging Congress to pass legislation allowing the State of Texas to manage the Gulf of Mexico red snapper fishery out to 200 nautical miles. Since the passage of HCR 105, the Snapper season was extended to 39 days this year, allowing recreational anglers an actual chance to head out into the Gulf to catch Red Snapper.

House Bills Passed by Representative Phelan


House Bill 1260 – Creates a shrimper's offloading license for non-Texas commercial shrimpers. Out-of-state operators can finally unload their shrimp caught in federal waters in Texas. Due to a decades old moratorium for all licenses, non-Texas shrimpers were not allowed in Texas - even to sell their product. This victory will add an additional 7 million pounds of Gulf shrimp and over $100 million in economic activity for the state of Texas. The passage of HB 1260 will also allow these vessels to refuel, purchase supplies, and have maintenance/repairs performed. These activities will create jobs and generate sales tax revenue that will positively impact the coast.

House Bill 1657 - Amends the occupation code to change the dates by ten years for the voluntary registration for interior designers.

House Bill 1661 - Allows a candidate in a local election who seeks to remove his or her name after the deadline to sign a waiver that would allow them to remove their name and prevent a political subdivision from wasting money on an election in which a candidate wishes to withdraw from the race and not continue an election.

House Bill 2771 - Originally, H.B. 2771 would have eliminated a fee collected by TCEQ for an Onsite Wastewater Permit. The fee began being collected in the 1980s by the Onsite Wastewater Research Council and was intended to be issued as grants to different entities for wastewater use and reuse research. When the Council was up for sunset review and abolished in 2011, TCEQ assumed the responsibilities and continued to collect the fee but failed to award any grants. The Senate would not allow the bill to continue through the legislative process as a fee elimination but rather obligate TCEQ to use the funds for their intended purpose.

House Bill 3018 - Prohibits an out of state insurance agent from selling or issuing a windstorm and hail policy in Texas unless that agent's home state (where the license is held) allows a Texas agent to sell such a policy as an insurer of last resort. Recently, Louisiana had passed a bill only allowing Louisiana agents to issue policies in their state, so H.B. 3018 creates reciprocity.

House Bill 3021 - Currently, a state governmental entity may not require an architect or engineer to indemnify or hold harmless the state for claims resulting from the negligent acts of the governmental entity or its employees. H.B. 3021 expands the protections against a contractual duty to include "defend".

House Bill 3781 - Clarifies the purposes and uses of the Lifetime License Endowment fund to be used only for managing the fish and wildfire resources on the state to allow capital expenditures relating to acquiring, constructing, and purchasing transportation items, equipment, and IT. H.B. 3781 will free up around $8 million in the biennium that will be used to help meet some of the replacement transportation needs for our Game Wardens. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Law Enforcement division was in great need of funds to help replace vehicles and boats that had been damaged or worn down in Operation Strong Safety on the Border. H.B. 3781 will help provide those funds.

House Bill 7 - Requires municipalities who impose a tree mitigation fee for tree removal to allow that person to apply for a credit for tree planting to offset the amount of the fee. The bill provides flexibility, supports property rights, and reduces financial and administrative burdens associated with tree removal. House Bill 7 also prohibits fees from being assessed against residential properties with existing one or two-family homes and allows for other residential properties to be eligible for a tree planting credit of at least 50% of the fee charged by the municipality and non-residential structures may be eligible for a credit of at least 40%.




Senate Sponsored Bills Passed by Representative Phelan



Senate Bill 347 (Companion to House Bill 3027) - Mandates that regional water planning groups be subject to the Open Meetings and Public Information Act. This allows for more transparency and gives the public an opportunity to provide input.

Senate Bill 693 (Companion to House Bill 1188) - A huge victory for 1.1 million school children who ride a bus everyday. SB 693 by requires all new school buses purchased by a school district, with a model year of 2018 or later, to be equipped with three-point seat belts. If a district deems themselves financially unable to meet the standard, then this district's board must hold a public vote to opt themselves out of the requirement.

Senate Bill 1105 (Companion to House Bill 3027) - Abolishes the used oil recycling account, transferring its balance and revenue dedications into the water resource management account. The water resource management account has seen lower than expected balances of late and is at risk of depletion. Transferring the unneeded used oil account funds makes the water account reliably sound.

Senate Bill 1538 85(R) (Companion to House Bill 3746) - Expands permissible uses of the Floodplain Management Fund to include any other activities related to the collection and analysis of flood-related information; flood planning, protection, mitigation, or adaption; and the provision of flood-related information to the public through education or outreach programs.


Senate Bill 1842 85(R) (Companion to House Bill 3746) - Allows for a Class A utility to apply to the PUC for an amendment of a municipal utility district's certificate of convenience and necessary to allow the utility to have the same rights and powers under the certificate as the municipal utility district.

Senate Bill 1963 (Companion to House Bill 2775) - Allows for observations in educator prep programs other than for classroom teacher certification to be conducted either on site or using other electronic telecommunications capabilities. I’m proud to have authored H.B. 2775, which will directly impact our area. It will allow the Texas Education Agency to conduct observation of participants in advanced education preparation programs (such as those to become a principal, superintendent, or counselor) remotely through Skype or other technology-enhanced solutions. This will decrease regulation, reduce program costs for students and institutions, and increase access to students across the state by allowing institutions to offer online classes.

Senate Bill 2271 (Companion to House Bill 4299) - Creates the Port Neches Improvement District and establishes the board, the rules governing the election of the board, the duties, the powers, bond authority, tax authority, and boundaries of the district. This district will allow the city of Port Neches to continue to develop the property along the Ship Channel that has already been proven a success with the beginning of the Wheelhouse.


A Great Tax Relief Bill that Got Away . . .

House Bill 155 by Representative Phelan would have allowed for a refund for a homeowner who sells their homestead for less than the appraised value given by a County Appraisal District. H.B. 155 passed overwhelmingly in the House Ways and Means Committee as well on the House Floor. The bill was not given a hearing in the Senate and died. Over the interim, my office will work on crafting a similar bill for the 86th legislature.
