A reading from the Book of Ephesians: "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against the flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." Members, let us pray each day not to battle each other but rather to battle ideas, to battle the forces of evil with the forces for good to improve the lives of our fellow Texans. May this force be with you. Amen.

The chair recognized Representative K. King who led the house in the pledges of allegiance to the United States and Texas flags.

HR 826 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE BUTTON: Members, we are so happy to be here to celebrate Asian American Heritage Month. We have HR 826, but we're not going to just read it. That would be boring. So we're going to have a little bit more charming style, okay? This Asian American Heritage Month celebration started as a whole-month celebration in 1992. According to the latest census estimation, Asian American population in the United States is going to exceed five percent. How about that? Just looking at our Texas House of Representatives now, our Asian American Caucus has changed to be four-and-a-half members. I say half because his wife is from Hong Kong. And you're free to join us; we don't charge anything. And also the speaker wants everybody to know that he spent three weeks visiting Asia as a member of a young leaders delegation, and he truly enjoyed the visit. So let's celebrate. Sorry we don't have any candies or whatever due to the restrictions, but I want you to celebrate with us. Go home and open a couple of fortune cookies, and you know each of them is going to say, "Your bill will pass real soon."

REPRESENTATIVE VO: I just want to say, Happy Asian Month, and let's celebrate tonight. Let's go out and eat Asian food. We have Chinese restaurants, Korean, Vietnamese, and Thai around the Austin area.

REPRESENTATIVE WU: Normally at this time of the year during session, we would have hundreds if not almost thousands of Asian American community members from across the state in the gallery and around the Capitol. And that celebration has gotten bigger every session. My first session was the first session that the community started organizing and started coming up here. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, many people decided to cancel it this time, but we're hoping next session that we have an even larger crowd. And the reason for this is that the Asian American community is the single fastest-growing community in the United States and in Texas as well. And one of the things I want to remind you about is the Asian community is far more than just Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean, but it also includes Pacific Islanders, also includes South Asians, Indians, Pakistanis, Malaysians, and many others.
What I would encourage all of you to do is to seek out the beauty, the diversity, and the wonders within your own community. You have a large Asian American population within all of your districts that you may have never met, that you may have never been to their celebrations, that you may not have enjoyed their awesome food. Go find them and join their celebrations. Celebrate with all Texans and enjoy their wonderful, beautiful culture that they bring to our wonderful state. And maybe have a nice jacket made.

REPRESENTATIVE PAUL: I'm glad to be the half member of this group. As a lot of y'all know, my wife is an immigrant from Hong Kong. I always told her that the day we got married, I'm considered half Chinese because that's who our children would be. We have one daughter, and a lot of y'all have met her. So it's really great to be here and really participate with these folks as well as support the Asian community that's in our district. We have a very large Asian community, and I'm glad to thank them for the benefit and the things that they offer to us in Texas.

Representative Reynolds moved to print all remarks on HR 826.

BILLS AND RESOLUTIONS SIGNED BY THE SPEAKER

Notice was given at this time that the speaker had signed bills and resolutions in the presence of the house (see the addendum to the daily journal, Signed by the Speaker, Senate List No. 8).

HB 2000 ON THIRD READING
(by Huberty, Paddie, Harless, P. King, et al.)

HB 2000, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to the funding of utility reliability and resiliency projects by the Texas Water Development Board; authorizing the issuance of revenue bonds.

Amendment No. 1

Representatives Huberty and C. Turner offered the following amendment to HB 2000:

Amend HB 2000 on page 10 by striking the following language on lines 17-19:
"or other privately owned dispatchable sources of electricity or the weatherization of privately owned dispatchable sources of electricity constructed before September 1, 2022".

AMENDMENT NO. 1 - STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

REPRESENTATIVE C. TURNER: I appreciate you coming to me with this this morning. I think, am I right, what happened yesterday is you had a perfecting amendment that you put on first and it included some of the language that is very similar to the amendment that I subsequently added. The goal of both amendments is the same, which is to say that this fund cannot be used to subsidize or otherwise support the construction of new generation in the State of Texas. Is that right?

REPRESENTATIVE HUBERTY: That is absoutely correct. We kind of flew over each other when we did our amendments because we knew we missed it originally. And we were very clear this is about winterization only, meeting the governor's emergency item that we were trying to create. And I know you probably had some calls from your generators as we did yesterday. So as we talked through this, we recognized––we came to an agreement––we both agree that we don't want this used for new generation. We don't want those to be going to incentivize that. We want them to fix the problems so we don't have this happen again.

C. TURNER: So with this amendment, with the amendment that you added in yesterday and the rest of the bill as written as it goes to third reading, it is your intent and the legislature's intent that none of the funds made available by this program will be used for new generation, only for weatherization of existing generation.

HUBERTY: Yes, the generation, and then also the broadband, the natural gas pipes, things of that nature, and the other components that exist within that we gave to the Texas Water Development Board. That is correct.

Section 1681 et seq.), for the purpose of assisting with the determination of an individual's eligibility to receive unemployment benefits, including to conduct an analysis on the pilot.

HB 957 ON THIRD READING
(by Oliverson, Hefner, White, Guillen, et al.)

HB 957, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to local, state, and federal regulation of firearm suppressors.

HB 957 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE A. JOHNSON: I wanted to visit with you today because we did not talk about the bill yesterday, and I wanted to make sure some of the aspects that we were dealing with were clearly established. This bill, HB 957, is regarding the regulation of silencers––

REPRESENTATIVE OLIVERSON: Suppressors.

A. JOHNSON:––and suppressors.

OLIVERSON: Suppressors––there's no such thing as a silencer.

A. JOHNSON: So silencers and suppressors.

OLIVERSON: Silencers do not exist, but there are suppressors.

A. JOHNSON: Okay. A suppressor is meant to muffle the amount of decibels that are put out by the firing of the shot.

OLIVERSON: Yes, it reduces the impact noise that is generated by the exit of the bullet out of the muzzle of the rifle or the pistol.

A. JOHNSON: And the suppressor is meant to be brought down to about what decibel?

OLIVERSON: So it depends on the kind of round that you're using and the type of weapon. But as an example, if you were using a rifle without a suppressor, the sound is about 165 decibels, which is twice as loud as a jet takeoff. With a suppressor, it drops down to about 140 decibels, which is equivalent to being on the deck of an active aircraft carrier.

A. JOHNSON: And 120 decibels is being in a bar.

OLIVERSON: Okay.

A. JOHNSON: And 141 was the NFL record for just screams in a stadium.

OLIVERSON: Okay.

A. JOHNSON: Okay. This law also suggests that because––and I'm asking, is the intent of the author that by putting everything in Texas you're avoiding any federal regulation to what you're calling a "suppressor"?

OLIVERSON: So the intent of the regulation stems from the fact that there is a CDC study that recommends the use of a firearm suppressor whenever possible. So we have federal agencies recommending their use whenever someone is shooting a firearm.

A. JOHNSON: And so just to be clear, if we're talking about the concept of a suppressor, that may be for somebody who has sensitive ears or doesn't want to have hearing loss, correct?

OLIVERSON: Not necessarily, because according to the CDC study, even a normal, healthy person who's repeatedly exposed to impact noise will sustain permanent hearing loss. The number one recommendation of all of their conclusions was to use a firearm suppressor whenever possible to avoid permanent hearing loss.

A. JOHNSON: And if an individual is practicing at a firing range by choice, they also have the ability to use ear protectants that would also reduce the decibels and the impact on the ear canal, correct?

OLIVERSON: Those are also recommendations, but they were not as highly recommended as using a firearm suppressor.

A. JOHNSON: But unfortunately, not everybody is a reasonable gun owner, and some people use weapons to harm others.

OLIVERSON: Representative, this bill is not about reasonableness or unreasonableness. This is about hearing protection. This is about following CDC guidelines.

A. JOHNSON: And you want every suppressor to be stamped "Made in Texas."

OLIVERSON: So the suppressor, if it was manufactured in Texas, could be stamped "Made in Texas." That's my understanding.

A. JOHNSON: You've also limited any regulation by, among others, boards, which could be school boards; councils, which could be our local councils; courts, which could be a court where I work; and university and higher education systems from making any changes.

OLIVERSON: Representative, a firearm suppressor is just a piece of metal unless it's attached to a firearm. This does nothing to change existing laws in place with respect to where firearms can be carried or not carried.

A. JOHNSON: But your statement is that any regulation by any of these entities, including schools, with regard to suppressors––

OLIVERSON: A suppressor which, again––I will repeat what I just said––has nothing to do with a firearm and by itself is just a piece of metal.

A. JOHNSON: And a suppressor is useless without a gun.

OLIVERSON: Unless you want to hit somebody with it. It's not a dangerous device.

A. JOHNSON: But a suppressor is useless without a gun.

OLIVERSON: It is. So the point that you're making, I think, is that we're saying we can take suppressors into places. The point I'm trying to make is that without a gun, it's just basically a cylindrical piece of metal that has no real practical purpose other than a paperweight.

A. JOHNSON: Exactly, and that's why suppressor, with "Made in Texas," is going to be attached to a gun. I want to also highlight––everybody hem and hawed when I said "silencer" and said "suppressor." And I understand that that's a term that you're using, but you're also cutting out––

OLIVERSON: Well, and I think it's important. Since you brought it up, let's have that conversation. That is a Hollywood myth. And just like we talk about cars with mufflers, it doesn't make them silent. There is no such thing as a silent firearm.

A. JOHNSON: How about this? The law that you're repealing for Penal Code 46.05(a), you're scratching out "a firearm silencer."

OLIVERSON: Suppressor.

A. JOHNSON: No, no. Read your bill.

OLIVERSON: Suppressor.

A. JOHNSON: A "firearm silencer" is what you're repealing.

OLIVERSON: Well, that's a misnomer.

A. JOHNSON: That's not a Hollywood myth, right?

OLIVERSON: That's a misnomer.

A. JOHNSON: That's the Texas law you are cutting out with this bill.

OLIVERSON: I mean, look, you can call it an apple––you can call it a red apple, a green apple, whatever. It's a misnomer. And it's not representative of what the device actually does.

A. JOHNSON: I'm just calling it the word you're trying to delete from our law.

REPRESENTATIVE ISRAEL: I'm always leery about these things and them being vendor bills. How many silencer manufacturers are there in the State of Texas?

OLIVERSON: I'm not aware. I don't know.

ISRAEL: So this isn't intended to benefit one particular manufacturer over another?

OLIVERSON: No, ma'am. I think I made the intent of the bill very clear, that this is to support the CDC guidelines recommending their use.

ISRAEL: Why was this a criminal offense under the Penal Code?

OLIVERSON: I believe it's listed in the National Firearms Act as a dangerous device.

ISRAEL: And again, why do people use them? Is it your intention that these be something that's helpful on the firing range? Or helpful anytime anybody is using a gun?

OLIVERSON: So the typical reasons that people would use them is with respect to hearing protection. That's the main reason. I would also point out that a suppressor has the added benefit of reducing the felt recoil, so they can be very helpful to somebody that's learning to shoot for the first time and, you know, people sometimes squeeze the trigger and they jerk because they're afraid that it's going to hit them in the shoulder. And so what a suppressor will do is it will limit the amount of recoil that is felt. So they're also very useful training devices when you're working with somebody who's either very inexperienced with firearms or has sort of a bad habit where instead of squeezing the trigger, they're jerking because they're anticipating that they're going to get hit in the shoulder.

ISRAEL: It's my understanding, though, that the prominent standard for those who are at a firing range or they're in training mode is earplugs and other ear protection, correct?

OLIVERSON: It depends on the location, but I would just submit to you that there are other locations where one might engage in using a firearm that would not necessarily be an indoor firearm range, such as hunting or even potentially defending their property. There are other circumstances where that loud noise could permanently damage someone's hearing.

ISRAEL: Did any health care organizations testify in support of this bill?

OLIVERSON: I'm not sure who testified in support or against the bill.

ISRAEL: I don't believe they did, but I wanted to ask you.

CSHB 1340 ON SECOND READING
(by Leach, S. Thompson, Dutton, Smithee, Collier, et al.)

CSHB 1340, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to the extent of a defendant's criminal responsibility for the conduct of a coconspirator in a capital murder case.

CSHB 1340 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE LEACH: CSHB 1340 addresses what perhaps is our most solemn and important responsibility as legislators and policy makers and that is the imposition of the death penalty in Texas, deciding which Texans and which crimes are deserving of the ultimate punishment here in Texas. CSHB 1340 specifically addresses the situation dealing with the imposition of the death penalty in law of parties cases. Members, this bill is simple and straightforward. It's short, and so let me be very brief in my explanation.
Capital punishment should be handled with the utmost seriousness and should only be utilized when there is absolute confidence in the crime and the perpetrator. Under the existing law of parties as it is today, we simply cannot do that, and there need to be changes. I do want to thank several of our colleagues, including Representative S. Thompson, Representative Dutton, Representative Moody, and Representative Canales, who specifically worked on the law of parties issues over the years. And I want to thank Speaker Phelan for his commitment to a broad and strong criminal justice platform, including this bill. Members, current law should concern us. It's kept me up at night. The death penalty, as I said, should be reserved for the worst of the worst offenders for the most heinous crimes, but our current law of parties undermines the integrity of the Texas capital punishment system. This bill, members, CSHB 1340, brings Texas in alignment with Eighth Amendment standards by stating that to be convicted of capital murder under a conspiracy-party rule, a defendant had to have been a major participant in the underlying conspiracy and acted with reckless indifference to human life. I actually have an amendment that I want to offer to add one small change to the bill.

Amendment No. 1

Representative Leach offered the following amendment to CSHB 1340:

Amend CSHB 1340 (house committee report) on page 2, line 18, by striking "an unlawful purpose" and substituting "the unlawful purpose of the conspiracy".

AMENDMENT NO. 1 - REMARKS

LEACH: Of course, this amendment is acceptable to the author. Under the bill that's in front of you today, members, we will make sure that any Texan that receives the ultimate punishment imposed by the State of Texas, of course sentenced by a jury of his or her peers, actually committed a crime deserving of the ultimate punishment. And members, no matter where you stand on the death penalty, this is an issue that, as I mentioned, we've got to take seriously, we should take seriously. And I'm hopeful that this bill will actually lead to a broader, deeper conversation about the very existence of the death penalty in Texas. But as for the bill that's in front of you today, I am increasingly concerned that there are perhaps men on death row right now as we sit here voting on the floor of the Texas House who do not need to be there, who did not kill anybody, and who did not know anyone was going to be killed. For you lawyers, they didn't have the requisite mens rea. So members, this is a good bill and, I hope, deserving of your support and your confidence.

Amendment No. 1 was adopted.

Amendment No. 2

Representatives S. Thompson, Moody, Canales, Cain, and Leach offered the following amendment to CSHB 1340:

Amend CSHB 1340 (house committee report) by adding the following appropriately numbered SECTION and renumbering subsequent SECTIONS of the bill accordingly:
SECTION ____.  Not later than January 1, 2022, the Board of Pardons and Paroles shall review the criminal conviction of each inmate who is serving a sentence of death and found guilty only as a party under Section 7.02(b), Penal Code, to identify appropriate inmates to recommend to the governor for purposes of granting clemency.

AMENDMENT NO. 2 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE S. THOMPSON: This is an amendment that requests the Board of Pardons and Paroles to review the criminal conviction of each inmate who is serving a sentence of death and found guilty as a party under Section 7.02(b) of the Texas Penal Code, to identify appropriate inmates to recommend to the governor for purposes of granting clemency.

Amendment No. 2 was adopted.

REPRESENTATIVE SCHOFIELD: Mr. Leach, I like your bill. I understand what we're trying to do. We're trying to make sure that a person who just sat outside in the car and expected a quick robbery with nobody getting hurt isn't given the death penalty. My question is very specific. It's on page 1, lines 17-18, where we are taking out of the charge to the jury the question of whether the defendant anticipated that a human life would be taken. I wouldn't think that that would fall into the category of the things that we're trying to protect in this bill. If you go into the crime and maybe you are the lookout but you know we're here to kill Mr. Leach––I'm here to look out, I anticipate the life is going to be taken, but I didn't take it––why do you have that in here as something that we're going to take out in this bill?

LEACH: Well, my first amendment addressed this situation, Representative Schofield––the first amendment to the bill that I accepted dealing with "the unlawful purpose of the conspiracy." And so you hit the nail on the head with your example. For instance, two specific cases come to mind. The case of Jeff Wood, who is currently on death row––he's actually been there, members, for over 25 years––for a crime that was committed in Kerr County. In Mr. Wood's case, Mr. Wood was expecting to be the getaway driver for what was going to be the robbery of a convenience store. Little did he know that his friend who sat in the passenger seat actually had a gun confiscated in his pocket. The crime went wrong. The clerk fought back. His friend Mr. Reneau, who since has been executed by the state, shot and killed the clerk. So Mr. Wood, as you correctly stated, did not have the requisite mens rea, yet he's been sitting on death row for 25 years. On the other hand, the case that comes to mind is the Texas Seven. Many folks have brought up the case of the Texas Seven where but for the actions of the getaway driver, there would not have been a homicide, a murder. No one would have been killed. So the conspirators were like-minded in the actual execution of the crime, and that's what this bill still protects. It still allows the death penalty to be imposed in that case, but in Mr. Wood's case and others like it, the death penalty would be ruled out in those cases.

SCHOFIELD: So why when we're asking the jury whether the defendant actually caused the death or did not actually cause the death but intended to, why would we take out that he "anticipated that a human life would be taken"? I would think that would fall into the category of things that we would anticipate you could get––or at least be eligible for––the death penalty for, as opposed to, as you say, Mr. Wood's case where that's not what he thought was going to happen. He had no idea it was going to happen and then something goes wrong. Here, we're no longer going to ask the jury whether the defendant we're talking about anticipated that a human life would be taken as part of that crime. Am I'm not sure I get how that fits into what you're trying to do.

LEACH: Representative Schofield, I'm admittedly confused by your question. I'm sitting here reading the language, and I want to make sure that I understand specifically what you're asking. So can you maybe re-ask it in a clearer way?

SCHOFIELD: Sure. Under current law before we amend it with your bill, which I intend to vote for, one of the things that we'll ask the jury in cases where the defendant could be found guilty under the law of parties is "whether the defendant actually caused the death of the deceased or did not actually cause the death of the deceased but intended to kill the deceased or another or [whether the person] anticipated that a human life would be taken." So we're asking the jury, is this a defendant who went into this crime anticipating that a life would be taken? And we're no longer going to ask that, and I'm not sure why not.

LEACH: So the bill very clearly states, Representative, that in order to impose the death sentence, the jury must find one of two things––that either the defendant intentionally killed the victim or did not actually perpetrate the murder but intended to kill the victim or another. So these are legal terms, "anticipate." I still think what you're talking about is protected in the the text of bill.

SCHOFIELD: Well, I'll give you the example. The example is if you, me, and Mr. Goldman go with the purpose of killing somebody and we get there and I don't pull the trigger. So I don't kill them and I don't intend to, but I darn well anticipate he's going to be killed as part of the crime. That's not the same thing as a type of person that I think most of us are going to vote today to try to make sure doesn't get the death penalty. If you are participating in the crime and the anticipation that this person is going to be killed even though you know you're not going to pull the trigger, I'm not sure that's somebody I would––I still think I'd want to ask the jury that question.

LEACH: Well, Representative Schofield, I think we may be crossing signals because I still think what you're talking about is protected under the text of the bill. I don't want to say that the language that's struck out, the "anticipation" language, is extraneous or not necessary. I understand what you're saying, but I still believe that those situations are protected under the text of the bill. As I just said, "actually caused the death," so the defendant is actually the one who killed or under the law of parties, "intended to kill the deceased or another." I still think that that's actually protected under the text of the bill.

SCHOFIELD: So if I'm one of the three conspirators, I know I'm not going to pull the trigger because you're the only one with a gun. My job is to block the door so nobody gets in while you're doing it. I know we're there to kill the guy. That's why we are there. But I didn't kill him and I didn't intend to kill him. I intended you would. We are no longer going to ask whether I "anticipated that a human life would be taken." I presume that's the reason for asking under current law if you anticipated that a human life would be taken. Am I missing something? I don't do criminal law so I'm going to defer to those who do.

LEACH: We're talking about the imposition of the death penalty in this situation of the law of parties. We want to actually have that intent––the intent, not just the anticipation that that might happen but the intent to effectuate that crime. And that's the purpose of us striking that language and including this other language further down the bill. And so I understand what you're saying and I'm not saying your question is not without merit, but I believe that it's still strongly protected under the bill. And I actually think the new language is more clear than the old language.

SCHOFIELD: And I still intend to vote for your bill. I just hope we don't get to a situation where we have gang members who don't get the penalty for killing some kid when all of them involved knew what they were doing. But I thank you for bringing the bill. I think it's going to do a world of good.

REPRESENTATIVE COLLIER: Chairman Leach, thank you so much for this bill. Like you said earlier, many members have tried to pass this, and it's been brought up because it's a very important issue. I want to appreciate Representative Schofield's concerns, but my understanding is that they have been addressed in your bill already. Perhaps that first page and that section is not necessary because if you go to page 2, Section (b), it very clearly addresses the anticipation part. In (b)(2) it says "a conspirator acts with reckless indifference to human life if the conspirator is aware of but consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk." So that deals with the anticipation and awareness of the mens rea part that he's addressing.

LEACH: That's exactly right, Representative, and that's well said. This bill is dealing with the imposition of the death penalty in law of parties cases. And we want to reserve, by way of this bill, the death penalty for the cases in which there is intent. That is a legal term for intent not only on the part of the one who actually fires the gun and does the killing but intent on the getaway driver or the coconspirator. Anticipation is still in code––it's in another section of code––and you could still do life, a life term without the possibility of parole, in an event where there was an anticipated crime but not the intent found by the jury. That's still protected. This is only dealing with when the death penalty is imposed.

COLLIER: Absolutely, and so I don't think that––I believe that his concerns are already addressed in the bill that we have in front of us. So I want to make sure that members know that the concerns that Representative Schofield raised are already addressed in this bill and it's been taken care of, and so you have a great bill. I want to thank you so much, and I fully support this bill.

LEACH: Thank you, Madam Chair, for your leadership. I again want to thank, of course, Chairman Dutton here and Representative S. Thompson, Speaker Moody, Representative Krause, so many of you who are passionate about this issue and have worked with us. Members, in closing, I want to challenge you as your friend and your colleague, and I specifically want to talk to my republican counterparts, especially those who are going to be voting on pro-life bills as early as tomorrow. Members, it is our obligation as legislators, as Texans, and for those of us who pride ourselves on doing everything we can to protect innocent life, I encourage you and implore you to think deeply about the death penalty in Texas. Just today, I read a story from our state to the north, Oklahoma, where they literally have found DNA evidence exonerating a man who was executed four years ago. That should keep us up at night. And so I ask your support of this bill. This is commonsense legislation that every single one of us should be able to support. And going forward, whether this is your first term, your last term, or whether you're here 10 more terms, this is a conversation that every session we should take seriously and should be open to being very thoughtful and intentional about as legislators.

CSHB 3777 ON SECOND READING
(by Noble and Guillen)

CSHB 3777, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to eligible costs and expenses for purposes of the franchise tax credit for the certified rehabilitation of certified historic structures.

CSHB 3777 - STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

REPRESENTATIVE MARTINEZ FISCHER: Representative Noble, just for the purposes of legislative intent, I know we've been working on this for quite some time, and San Antonio has benefited or has applied and used this program. Is that your understanding?

REPRESENTATIVE NOBLE: Yes, they have.

MARTINEZ FISCHER: And so far as going forward, with respect to the law, you and I both have been working with the Historical Commission, and as you and I understand it, the way this law is being proposed is that this will not apply to the existing project of the Alameda Theater in San Antonio. Is that correct?

NOBLE: Absolutely. The Alameda Theater, in particular, its operation, restoration, and maintenance are under control of the Alameda Theater Conservancy, and therefore it does qualify for this tax credit.

MARTINEZ FISCHER: Thank you. That's my understanding, too. And Representative Noble, as it relates to projects at the San Antonio historical missions, all of our historical missions there now would also not be impacted by this change in law. Is that correct?

NOBLE: You are absolutely correct. Because those missions are under the control of a nonprofit, the Catholic Archdiocese, then they are also absolutely under this bill.

MARTINEZ FISCHER: Thank you. And then, we've talked about The Alamo and we've sort of had a discussion as it relates to any city-owned property, that if they were to enter into a nonprofit arrangement similar to the Alameda or similar to the missions, that they, too, might also be able to seek the benefit of this historic tax credit. Is that your understanding?

NOBLE: It is my understanding that The Alamo itself sits on state property. Therefore, we wouldn't need a tax credit in order to do restoration on it. The Cenotaph, in fact, sits on city property, but if the City of San Antonio places that area under the control of a nonprofit and is not the lessee of that project, the repair should be eligible for these tax credits.

MARTINEZ FISCHER: As it relates to anything on the city property, is that correct?

NOBLE: If they have given control over to a nonprofit.

RULING BY THE SPEAKER
on House Bill 211

Announced in the House on May 4, 2021

Representative Tinderholt raises a point of order against further consideration of CSHB 211 under Rule 4, Section 40, and Rule 11, Section 2, of the House Rules on the grounds that the committee substitute is not germane.

Accordingly, the point of order is well-taken and sustained, and pursuant to Rule 4, Section 41, the bill is returned to the Committee on Calendars.
