Municipal Contraction Procedures (Support) – FAILED 

CS/HB 1401 (Persons-Mulicka) and SB 1876 (Perry) specify that if more than 70 percent of land in an area proposed for contraction is owned by individuals, corporations or legal entities that are not registered electors, the area may only be contracted if the owners of more than 50 percent of the parcels of land in the area consent to the contraction. If the area does not have any registered electors on the date the ordinance is adopted, a vote of electors of the area is not required. (Cruz)
