Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 397A.001
Legislative Findings; Purpose


The legislature finds that:


the areas that surround military installations will be frequented for military, national security, and international training purposes by residents from many parts of the state, nation, and world;


compatible development and use of those areas is of concern to the state and nation; and


without adequate regulation, the areas will tend to become incompatible with military missions and will be used in ways that interfere with:


the proper continued use of those areas as secure locations for military installations and missions; and


the effective operation of the military installations and missions.


The powers granted under this chapter are for the purposes of:


promoting the public health, safety, and general welfare;


protecting and preserving places and areas of military and national security importance and significance;


protecting critical military missions and operations related to those missions; and


ensuring state and national security.


This chapter may not be interpreted to grant regulatory powers to administer Chapter 245 (Issuance of Local Permits) or to amend a protection or benefit provided by Chapter 245 (Issuance of Local Permits).
Added by Acts 2009, 81st Leg., R.S., Ch. 1320 (H.B. 2919), Sec. 3, eff. June 19, 2009.
