Tex. Gov't Code Section 391.003
Place Designations


In this section, “place designation” means a special observance by the legislature that recognizes and honors an event or location in this state, including a municipality or county.


The legislature may not assign the same place designation to more than one event or location.


The legislature may not assign more than one place designation to any municipality, county, or other location. This subsection does not prohibit the legislature from assigning more than one place designation within a county.


Before the legislature may assign a place designation to a municipality, county, or other location, the legislature must be presented by persons supporting the designation with:


information related to the historical or cultural significance of the event or location to be designated; and


documentation that a local chamber of commerce or a locally elected governmental body representing the municipality, county, or other location to be designated supports the designation.


A place designation expires on the 10th anniversary of its designation. This subsection does not prevent the legislature from redesignating a place designation during or after the 10-year period.
