ADDRESS BY REPRESENTATIVE DARBY

The chair recognized Representative Darby who addressed the house, speaking as follows:

Thank you for this opportunity to speak about our beloved friend John Otto. John Clifford Otto was born and raised in Dayton, Texas. He was a high school pitcher on the baseball team, a member of the FFA, and a drum major for Dayton High School Band. After high school, John attended Texas A&M, where he was a member of the Corps of Cadets and became the head drum major for the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band. I knew the whoops were coming. He earned a bachelor's in business administration and accounting from A&M and graduated as a distinguished military graduate. After college, John went on to receive a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army. And in 1969, he married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Nancy Whitman. They had two sons, Bryan and Jason, and have many young grandchildren.
Representative Otto was elected to the Texas House in 2004 to serve the District 18 constituents, a position he held for six terms. At the moment of his arrival in the house, John rolled up his sleeves and went to work. He quickly made a name for himself around the Capitol, and during his tenure he received many numerous awards and distinctions, including twice being recognized as Texas Monthly's one of the 10 best legislators in Texas. And he was one of the best—always privileged to serve the people of Texas and championing legislation to better serve our state.
In his final session, John shepherded the balanced budgets of the legislature in his role as chairman of House Appropriations. John embodied the definition of a public servant—one who is an honest broker, intelligent and thoughtful, and morally grounded. John and I, along with many of you, became lifelong friends, as did our wives. Spending countless hours together on Appropriations and late nights on the house floor yielded many fond memories. He mentored many staffers, some of which are here today in the gallery. He was beloved to all who worked with him and for him. In 2017, John proudly accepted the position of assistant vice chancellor and director of local government for The Texas A&M University System, which allowed him to be a champion for his cherished Texas A&M.
John went to be with the Lord on August 1, 2020. He will forever be in our memories. I believe that Nancy and John's children are watching the proceedings from home today. You can see, Nancy, all the colleagues on the house floor here supporting you and your husband and your family. Our love for you, Nancy, and the Otto family extends beyond the boundaries of this facility. And we thank you for sharing your incredible husband with us in this house.
As an aside, members, I can recall just recently we brought up not only John Otto, but Tuffy Hamilton and Sergio Muñoz. Y'all know me, I'm all things Longhorn, but I will tell you Texas A&M has a wonderful tradition––it's the muster. And I think it's a tradition that I think we ought to start here in this house, that when we meet back in session, our regular two-year session, we pick a date––Texas Independence Day or another day––and we bring up the members who have served this body and this facility, so we can bring their name up. Because as long as these members are in our hearts and on our lips, they will be alive. They've served the people of this state, they've served this body, and they've served us. So I would hope that, Mr. Speaker and members of the house, we would start a tradition of bringing up our fallen colleagues and mentioning their names from this podium in this house when we're in session. So please join me in a moment of silence for Chairman Otto and his remarkable life. Thank you, members. Nancy, we love you.

REMARKS ORDERED PRINTED

Representative Harris moved to print remarks by Representative Darby on the Honorable John Otto.

SB 3 - STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

REPRESENTATIVE HOWARD: First off, I want to thank you for all you've done to put this together. I was honored to be on your committee and appreciate the honest broker that you are and how you were willing to invite all of us to come to the table to try to craft the best bill possible, knowing we can't all get everything that we want. But I really appreciate the work that you've put into this. I just have a couple of questions for legislative intent. This is about Sections 13 and 17 of the committee substitute. As SB 3 came over from the senate, it contained language in Section 13 of the bill that some were concerned imposed new and discriminatory costs on renewable generators by allocating the costs of ancillary services to renewable generation and requiring them to purchase replacement power. Is that correct? That's how it came over here?

REPRESENTATIVE PADDIE: Yes, ma'am.

HOWARD: I just want to establish for purposes of legislative intent that there is nothing in the committee substitute or in your author's amendments––particularly in Sections 13 and 17 of the bill but really anywhere in this legislation––that would impose new costs on renewable generators in a discriminatory manner. Is that correct?

PADDIE: Ms. Howard, that is correct. I think in the language itself we were very careful in the way it was crafted. In Section 13, for example, it requires PUC to make a holistic review of ancillary services, not just focusing in one particular area to determine whether services, first of all, meet the needs of the market and whether we need additional services, but to ensure costs are recovered only in a nondiscriminatory manner and also limit those costs based on causation of those services.

HOWARD: And then in Section 13 of the bill, is it your intent that any resources that provide ancillary services today can continue to do so? Is that correct?

PADDIE: Yes, I don't think there's anything in there that would limit that.

SB 1421 ON THIRD READING
(Thierry - House Sponsor)

SB 1421, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to the correction of an ad valorem tax appraisal roll and related appraisal records.

Amendment No. 1

Representative Shine offered the following amendment to SB 1421:

Amend SB 1421 on third reading by adding the following appropriately numbered SECTIONS to the bill and renumbering subsequent SECTIONS of the bill accordingly:
SECTION ____.  Sections 41.413(d) and (e), Tax Code, are amended to read as follows:
(d)  An [A property] owner of real property shall send to a person leasing property under a contract described by Subsection (b) [this section] a copy of any notice of appraised value of the property received by the property owner. The property owner must send the notice not later than the 10th day after the date the property owner receives the notice. Failure of the property owner to send a copy of the notice to the person leasing the property does not affect the time within which the person leasing the property may protest the appraised value. This subsection does not apply if the property owner and the person leasing the property have agreed in the contract to waive the requirements of this subsection or that the person leasing the property will not protest the appraised value of the property.
(e)  A person leasing real property under a contract described by Subsection (b) [this section] may request that the chief appraiser of the appraisal district in which the property is located send the notice described by Subsection (d) to the person. Except as provided by Subsection (f), the chief appraiser shall send the notice to the person leasing the property not later than the fifth day after the date the notice is sent to the property owner if the person demonstrates that the person is contractually obligated to reimburse the property owner for the taxes imposed on the property.
SECTION ____.  The changes in law made by this Act to Section 41.413(d) and (e), Tax Code, apply only to a notice of appraised value received by a property owner on or after the effective date of this Act.

Amendment No. 1 was adopted.

Amendment No. 2

Representative Shine offered the following amendment to SB 1421:

Amend SB 1421 on third reading as follows:
(1)  On page 3, line 7, between "Act" and "apply", insert "to Section 25.25, Tax Code,".
(2)  Add the following appropriately numbered SECTIONS to the bill and renumber subsequent SECTIONS of the bill accordingly:
SECTION ____.  Section 403.303(d), Government Code, is amended to read as follows:
(d)  A protesting school district may appeal a determination of a protest by the comptroller to a district court of Travis County by filing a petition with the court. An owner of property subject to the determination of the protest may, with the written approval of the protesting school district, join the school district as a party to the appeal. An appeal must be filed not later than the 30th day after the date the school district receives notification of a final decision on a protest. The [Review is conducted by the] court shall review de novo the comptroller's determination of the protest sitting without a jury. The court shall order specific changes to the property value study [remand the determination to the comptroller] if on the review the court determines [discovers that substantial rights of the school district have been prejudiced, and] that:
(1)  the comptroller has acted arbitrarily and without regard to the facts; or
(2)  the finding of the comptroller is not reasonably supported by a preponderance of the [substantial] evidence introduced before the court at the hearing.
SECTION ____.  The changes in law made by this Act to Section 404.303(d), Government Code, apply to an appeal of a determination by the comptroller of public accounts of a protest of the comptroller's findings in a study of school district property values that is pending on the effective date of this Act or is filed on or after the effective date of this Act.
SECTION ____.  The comptroller of public accounts is required to implement the changes in law made by this Act to Section 403.303(d), Government Code, only if the legislature appropriates money specifically for that purpose. If the legislature does not appropriate money specifically for that purpose, the comptroller may, but is not required to, implement the changes in law made by this Act to Section 403.303(d), Government Code, using other appropriations available for that purpose.

SB 20 - POINT OF ORDER

Representative Martinez Fischer raised a point of order against further consideration of SB 20 under Article III, Section 30, and Article III, Section 35, of the Texas Constitution. The point of order was overruled and the speaker submitted the following ruling:

RULING BY THE SPEAKER
on Senate Bill 20

Announced in the House on May 24, 2021

Representative Martinez Fischer raises a point of order against further consideration of SB 20 under Article III, Section 30, of the Texas Constitution on the grounds that the bill has been amended as to change its original purpose and under Article III, Section 35, on the grounds that the bill contains more than one subject.
For a point of order alleging that the bill's original purpose has been changed, it is well-settled that the purpose of the amendments must be exactly the opposite of the purpose of the bill. E.g. ,75 H. Jour. 3773 (1997). In this instance, the amendments furthered the purpose of the bill.
For a point of order alleging that a bill contains more than one subject, it is well-settled that if any conceivable subject can describe all elements of the bill, it has a single subject. E.g., 78 H. Jour. 5586 (2003) (citing 76 H. Jour. 2912 (1999)). Here, the subject of the bill can be described as the carrying and storing of firearms or firearm ammunition by a hotel guest.
Accordingly, the points of order are respectfully overruled.

SB 20 was passed by (Record 1373): 81 Yeas, 62 Nays, 1 Present, not voting.

SB 827 ON THIRD READING
(Lucio, et al. - House Sponsors)

SB 827, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to health benefit plan cost-sharing requirements for prescription insulin.

SB 827 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE TALARICO: I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for supporting me when I shared my experience with Type 1 diabetes for the first time a few weeks ago. And I also wanted to thank all of the Texans with Type 1 diabetes, all of the parents of children with Type 1 diabetes, and all of the spouses of partners with Type 1 diabetes who reached out to me and my office after I shared my story. This legislation has been a team effort. I want to thank my friend Representative Lucio, Senator Kolkhorst, and Dr. Oliverson. I've been bugging them about this idea since last summer. I also want to give a special thank you to Representative Price. After we all filed almost identical bills on this subject, we got in one room at the beginning of session to figure out how we're going to move the ball forward, and Representative Price was the first person to speak up and say, "I don't care if my name is on it as long as it gets done." And that's something we need a lot more of in this building.
When I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, I had health insurance. But like many Texans, it wasn't great insurance. So I paid $684 out of pocket for my first 30-day supply of insulin, the medicine that I needed to live. And I couldn't afford that, so I had to put it on a credit card. What kind of cruel system kicks people when they're down like that? People who, through no fault of their own, have been diagnosed with a deadly disease. The night I was elected to this body, I had two overwhelming emotions. One was a sense of honor that my constituents put their faith in me to represent them in this body. The second was a sense of relief because now I had the excellent state health insurance that every member of this body receives––insurance that was so good it would cover the cost of my insulin. And that kind of relief is hopefully what we're going to give to more Texans with this bill because every single Texan is entitled to the same health insurance that we receive. This is a big step forward, but I don't think any of us are going to rest until insulin is free for every single Texan who needs it. Because insulin is not a product––it's a human right.

SB 1270 ON THIRD READING
(E. Thompson - House Sponsor)

SB 1270, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to the procurement of certain goods and services related to highways by the Texas Department of Transportation.

SB 1270 - STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

REPRESENTATIVE DAVIS: You and I have been visiting about this bill and I just want to establish legislative intent because early on I had a concern as it relates to whether or not we were eliminating competitive bid. After careful review, we realized that we didn't totally eliminate it. It's just that we're increasing the numbers that can go beyond the 25,000 and 50,000. Is that correct?

REPRESENTATIVE E. THOMPSON: Yes, ma'am.

DAVIS: Also, I want to be clear that when we move it to 100,000, they still have to go through the purchasing act which requires them to get three formal bids from vendors. They can't just handpick a vendor. Is that correct?

E. THOMPSON: That's correct. Yes, ma'am.

DAVIS: And the last thing I wanted to make sure of is I think one of the challenges for the department was that they have to sometimes purchase the more aggressive procurement process for larger contracts, and it sometimes prevents them from moving the smaller projects forward in a timely manner. Is that correct?

E. THOMPSON: Yes, ma'am.

DAVIS: So we're trying to fix that.

E. THOMPSON: That is correct.

DAVIS: But it is your intent that this bill in no way eliminates competitive bidding and a process to make sure that everyone understands what the rules of the game will be as it relates to bidding and procurement for the State of Texas.

E. THOMPSON: Yes, ma'am, that's correct.

SB 1648 ON THIRD READING
(Krause - House Sponsor)

SB 1648, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to the provision of benefits to certain Medicaid recipients with complex medical needs.

SB 1648 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE KRAUSE: This was the bill for the medically fragile kids population community that we had last night. We had several amendments. I do have a few more.

REPRESENTATIVE HUNTER: Mr. Krause and Mr. Parker, we visited, and I just want to get clarification. An e-mail came out today on South Texas on an impact that some of the amendments may have had. And I just want to clarify for the record and get your agreement for our South Texas members that both of you are going to work with us as well as the senate so there is no negative impact, which the memo came out on. Is that correct?

KRAUSE: That's correct, and based on the information we were given, I think they were looking at maybe some inaccurate information. This is only for those less than one percent of the Medicaid population that's in this STAR program, MDCP, and other programs. We're just talking about 13,000 kids overall in the entire state, but yes, I'm happy to work with them and make sure that everybody's aligned on that.

HUNTER: So on behalf of the whole of the South Texas region, if you and Mr. Parker would work with us and South Texas so we know what's happening with that plan.

KRAUSE: Absolutely.

REPRESENTATIVE PAUL: Similar to Chairman Hunter, I was just wanting to ask, does this bill open up access for all the individuals in the program because it's all of STAR Health and STAR Kids?

KRAUSE: No, it's just, again, focused to that less than one percent, those 13,000 kids that are in this medically fragile, complex medical needs position that this is intended for. That is the only population that we're looking at here.

PAUL: So you don't believe that this amendment in any way could expand the Medicaid program that would allow more people from outside of the program to take advantage of this service?

KRAUSE: No. No, and I do believe that the amendments added last night, including Representative Parker's, were very narrowly defined and tailored to that very complex needs community, those medically fragile kids.

REPRESENTATIVE HULL: Your intent of this bill is to ensure that children enrolled in the Medically Dependent Children Program receive continuity of care from their specialized providers, regardless of whether or not Medicaid is their primary insurer. Is that correct?

KRAUSE: Yes. That is what SB 1648 is about.

HULL: Your original bill stated that this applied to recipients with complex medical needs, which I believe was your intent to refer to MDCP recipients. Is that correct?

KRAUSE: Yes, that and there's about three or four other programs that make up that complex medical needs population. Again, I think the MDCP's about 6,500. There's 13,000 total kids with these complex––these very acute, complex––medical needs. And that is really what the bill is designed to cover as well, all of those in that very small, acute population.

HULL: Do you believe that with the definition added by Representative Parker's amendment last night, that it could expand to include way more children on STAR Health, STAR Kids? As an example, a foster child who is enrolled in STAR Health could be included if they were asthmatic with chronic strep throat. They, of course, will receive the care they need through the traditional managed care model, would they not?

KRAUSE: I think what this bill is designed for is those complex medical needs. We've seen it where they've come in, and unfortunately, they can't come onto the floor, but we've seen they're in wheelchairs. These are the kids that can't eat on their own. They can't stand on their own. They can't breathe on their own. They can't digest food on their own. Those are the complex kids that we're talking about, and I do think Representative Parker's amendment was narrowly tailored enough. We've gone back and looked at that, that that is the population that we're looking at. Now, we did add one for foster kids to have an independent review––an automatic independent review—last night. But the population here is just for those complex medical needs.

HULL: Right, and I know that's the intent. It's just the way that it reads can really expand and blow it open to cover way more children, which is not something that the state can afford. And that's the concern.

KRAUSE: And I appreciate those concerns, and I appreciate you bringing those to us. I don't think that's the case, but I'm willing to continue to have that conversation and see if there's something we need to do.

HULL: Thank you, and I understand your intent and I appreciate it. I do agree that those children, especially the MDCP kids, really do need this.

Amendment No. 1

Representative Krause offered the following amendment to SB 1648:

Amend SB 1648 on third reading as follows:

Amendment No. 1

Representative Wu offered the following amendment to SB 4:

Amend SB 4 (house committee report) as follows:
(1)  On page 1, line 23, strike the underlined colon.
(2)  On page 1, line 24, and page 2, line 1, strike "(1) a written verification that the professional sports team will" and substitute "a provision encouraging the professional sports team to".
(3)  On page 2, line 3, strike "event; and" and substitute "event.".
(4)  On page 2, strike lines 4 through 21.

AMENDMENT NO. 1 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE WU: I absolutely respect what we're trying to do here in this bill. I respect Chair Burrows for sponsoring this bill, but once again we're carrying legislation that is openly and aggressively unconstitutional. This is subtle law in the United States. This has been subtle law in the United States for decades and decades and decades. And that subtle law is this: The First Amendment of the Constitution, the first part of the Bill of Rights, calls for the protection of free speech. And part of that free speech is that not only can the government not forbid you from saying certain things but the government can also not compel you to say certain things no matter what it is. And the government can tell itself what to do. It can tell its agencies what to do. But it cannot tell private individuals how to speak, what to think, what to say, how to feel. And just like a few sessions ago we voted on an anti-BDS bill, I put up the same arguments that this is a law that compels speech. This is a law that compels an oath––compels a private actor to do something that the government wants them to say or think or feel.
The United States Supreme Court time and time again has said this is unconstitutional. Now, if this bill had instead been a resolution, and we were saying with the force of our bodies, from the house and the senate, that we demand and encourage every single sports event, concert, or whatever it is that they should play "The Star-Spangled Banner," that they should play the national anthem, that they should have the Pledge of Allegiance before their event, that's completely okay. But the difference is this is state law. This is not a resolution. This is not an encouragement. This is a state law with the power of the state behind it. When the power of the state is used to compel speech, to force another actor to say something, do something, or think something, the United States Constitution objects. That's it.
This amendment is very simple. This amendment saves this bill. This amendment says that instead of forcing people to say something, it just says that we will in all contracts encourage people, encourage private entities, to play the national anthem. That's it. Without this amendment, this bill is per se unconstitutional. Just like the many other things that we've talked about in the past, it will be struck down by a court, and it will cost our state hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to defend a bill that we know is unconstitutional.

REPRESENTATIVE BURROWS: I just want to make it very clear so that the body is listening. This bill does not require anybody to actually play the national anthem. Is that correct?

WU: It requires them to say that they will.

BURROWS: No, it says only if they decide to take tax dollars. So these sporting teams don't have to take tax dollars, correct?

WU: Yes, and that type of tying it––tying is what we call unconstitutional funding conditioning.

BURROWS: So I'm right?

WU: This is a type of restriction that ties speech to funding that the Supreme Court has also discussed and ties it in with the same way.

BURROWS: Let's make sure the body is very clear. You would agree with me the sporting team does not have to take the tax subsidies. Is that correct?

WU: Absolutely.

BURROWS: Okay, and the sporting team, anybody who participates at the event, does not have to stand for the national anthem, doesn't have to sing along, doesn't have to participate in it?

WU: Absolutely.

BURROWS: This bill does not require any of those things.

WU: Absolutely.

BURROWS: And this also does not mandate that the sporting teams even play the national anthem if they don't want to. Is that right?

WU: Absolutely.

BURROWS: Okay, thank you.

WU: But the difference is the one part that you left out in the bill is in Section (C) on page 2. It says if they don't do this, they may subject the team to disbarment from contract with the state forever. If you don't do this––if you don't comply with this––what it means is in the future, you will no longer be allowed to contract with the state. And you can say a part of it is permissive, but when you have a provision like that in the bill and it becomes law, you are essentially telling private entities either say this or never do business with us ever again.
What my amendment does is maintains the spirit of what we're trying to do––maintains the attitude of this body to encourage people to be good Texans, to be good Americans, to be patriots––but at the same time, respecting the thing that we all swore an oath to defend, the United States Constitution. The United States Constitution is not something that we use one day and we toss away at the next. I would urge you to vote with me on this amendment to save this bill and to prevent our state from having another $100,000 or $200,000 lawsuit that we're going to lose.

BURROWS: I'll be very clear. The Constitution does not guarantee that professional sports teams get tax dollars. Period. The end. There is nothing in there that guarantees them that right. It's very simple. If they do not want to play the national anthem, they don't have to take tax dollars. With that, I'm going to respectfully ask to you follow me and oppose this amendment.

REPRESENTATIVE C. TURNER: So I want to be clear on what the bill does and does not do. You just said a professional sports team does not have to take tax dollars, and if they don't take tax dollars, they wouldn't be subject to this bill. Is that correct?

BURROWS: Correct.

C. TURNER: So my understanding is that with many professional sports teams, what actually happens is you'll have a facility that is perhaps paid for in part or in full by public money. The City of Arlington has two such facilities, and the city, I believe, owns those facilities, so they're not the property of the sports teams. The facilities own them, but there is a lease agreement or a rental agreement, usually a very favorable one, between a sports team––or in some cases multiple sports teams depending on the facility––and the city. So would your bill impact those arrangements?

BURROWS: Yes, so that is exactly what it does. If we're going to go ahead and subsidize with hard-earned American dollars the sporting facilities, the teams, and the different ways that I think is articulated in this bill, then this would apply.

C. TURNER: Sure, and I think a lot of us have concerns about some of the public financing arrangements for some of these facilities. But with respect to Mr. Wu's amendment that we're on right now, you don't think that it would be acceptable simply to say that the legislature is encouraging such teams, such facilities, to play the national anthem? You really think we have to say we require it?

BURROWS: Yes, I believe this bill is an important bill for us to pass as a body. I believe it needs to stay as is, and I'm opposing the amendment. I do not believe there is anything unconstitutional about this. And I believe very simply it's not compelled speech because it's very simple––professional sports can just decide they do not want to take any of these tax subsidies if they don't want to.

WU: Members, Chair Burrows just laid it out for you, actually, in this back and forth with Chair Turner. This is not just purely conditional on taking new money but this is for all existing facilities as well that have any amount of state or local money attached to it. I hate being up here talking about this every few days. I hate being up here having to talk to y'all about the First Amendment time and time again. But I would really urge you to respect our Constitution to do not what is politically expedient but do what our government and our founding documents actually require. And I would urge you to vote yes on the amendment.

Amendment No. 2

Representative Crockett offered the following amendment to SB 4:

Amend SB 4 (house committee report) as follows:
(1)  On page 2, line 1, strike "will play the United States national anthem" and substitute "will,".
(2)  On page 2, line 3, between "event" and the underlined semicolon, insert the following:
, play:
(A)  the United States national anthem; and
(B)  "Lift Every Voice and Sing," commonly known as the Black national anthem of the United States

AMENDMENT NO. 2 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE CROCKETT: Members, this amendment does not strike that the national anthem should be played, but it also includes that "Lift Every Voice and Sing," which is commonly known as the Black national anthem of the United States, be played as well.

REPRESENTATIVE DUTTON: Representative, so your amendment says that the team could play either/or, right?

CROCKETT: Actually it says both.

DUTTON: It says they play both?

CROCKETT: Correct.

DUTTON: Not either/or?

CROCKETT: No. I would be open to changing the amendment and doing an amendment to the amendment to change it to either/or.

DUTTON: Either/or––yes. Because what I wondered is a lot of these sports teams, by and large, have huge African American participants, right?

CROCKETT: Absolutely.

DUTTON: So maybe we ought to fix it so that if you have at least 51 percent African Americans, you could choose the Negro national anthem.

CROCKETT: Absolutely, that sounds like that would work as well.

BURROWS: I'm going to, with the deepest amount of respect to my friend and colleague, oppose the amendment. We are looking at this one national anthem. This is a bill that I would like to pass and keep it as clean as possible. So with that I will respectfully oppose.

CROCKETT: Members, we live in one of the most diverse––actually, we live in the most diverse country in the world. And to make it to where we aren't even willing to say, hey, you can sing "Lift Every Voice and Sing," which is known as the Black national anthem, as an option would be a slap in the face, especially here in the State of Texas where we have more African Americans than any other state. I agree with Representative Wu when he says that I don't think this is constitutional. I don't even understand why we would feel the need to force someone into singing any song. But if we are going to force people to sing a song, we should at least be mindful of the people that are playing on these teams and the people that are actually in the stands supporting these teams. And so this is an easy amendment. It doesn't strike them from playing the national anthem, but instead it also includes "Lift Every Voice and Sing."

REPRESENTATIVE J.D. JOHNSON: Representative Crockett, when we talk about "The Star-Spangled Banner," do you know the entire history of "The Star-Spangled Banner"?

CROCKETT: You mean the racist part?

J.D. JOHNSON: Yes.

CROCKETT: Okay, yes.

J.D. JOHNSON: And in that––what is it?

CROCKETT: I don't know the words.

J.D. JOHNSON: You don't have to tell me the words, but to break it down, what does that third stanza of "The Star-Spangled Banner" ultimately say?

CROCKETT: You got me. Tell me.

J.D. JOHNSON: The third stanza of "The Star-Spangled Banner"---and I paraphrase---literally says that any slave that runs for freedom as they were fighting against the British, that "The Star-Spangled Banner" wished hate and death upon any slave that ran. Now, as we are trying to be patriots, and we want to celebrate our country, and we want to enjoy and say this is a great country, we can't forget what the history oftentimes said about black people and how they often threatened black people, who wanted simply freedom, with death.

CROCKETT: Absolutely.

J.D. JOHNSON: And if there is a group of people in this free country that we live in that decide that that may be a little too much for them to have to bear, that they should have the opportunity, then, to sing maybe another song that may be patriotic to them. Would you agree?

CROCKETT: Absolutely.

J.D. JOHNSON: Thank you for your amendment.

CROCKETT: Thank you. And as Representative Johnson was just saying, we've debated freedom this entire session. We talk about freedom when it comes to a mask and whether or not people should wear masks. Yet when it comes to something like this and a song that may have negative implications for one portion of our community, we decide to ignore that, and we decide to continue to force. I mean, we just debated about whether or not we should be teaching race issues in the classroom. Yet we're now going to say sing this song. So I'm just asking for this simple amendment because "Lift Every Voice and Sing" does have a different meaning and just the same powerful meaning to many African Americans in this state.

Amendment No. 3

Representative Dutton offered the following amendment to SB 4:

Amend SB 4 (house committee report) as follows:
(1)  On page 2, line 1, strike "will play the United States national anthem" and substitute "will,".
(2)  On page 2, line 3, between "event" and the underlined semicolon, insert the following:
, play either:
(A)  the United States national anthem; and
(B)  "Lift Every Voice and Sing," commonly known as the Black national anthem of the United States

AMENDMENT NO. 3 - REMARKS

DUTTON: What you heard just previously, I've added to that amendment that she had. And now what will happen is this amendment says that they will play either the United States national anthem or what's commonly referred to as the Black national anthem of the United States.

BURROWS: Like the others, I'm going to respectfully oppose this amendment and try to keep this bill clean so we can send it back over.

DUTTON: Again, I understand the optics of this, and I hope you understand the optics of this, too. But when teams gather to play sports or any event like that, they choose to play the national anthem because that's what they want to do. And I think they ought to have the right to choose not to play the national anthem. But if we're going to demand they play the national anthem, we ought to recognize that––I don't know how many of you know "Lift Every Voice and Sing." It was called the Negro national anthem. It was written by James Weldon Johnson and his brother J. Rosamond Johnson. And if you go back and look at the history, what you'll find out is those two gentlemen were pretty noted poets and musicians. And so what this amendment does––it doesn't require them to play the Negro national anthem. It doesn't say that. All it says is they can choose to play either. And I think once we're giving them an option, then that's the best of all worlds because we're saying you can play either to meet the requirements of this bill. And I know the author said that he'd like to keep the bill clean. Well, I'd like to keep our history clean, and so I ask you to vote aye on the amendment.

CSSB 15 - STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

REPRESENTATIVE ASHBY: I'm proud to serve as joint author of this bill. It is a great bill. There was a little confusion, as you know and as Senator Nichols knows, some ambiguity that pertains to our defensive driving schools that get information and share that with their clients. And so just for legislative intent here, a bunch of lawyer language, but in Section 730.013, this section continues to permit the authorized recipients redisclosure of the personal information to the person who was the subject of the record when the authorized recipient requests that information from the agency on the person's behalf, in accordance with this section of the bill. In this event, the authorized recipient is not required to verify the permitted use of the person who was the subject of the information as is done under this section, and thus, Subsections (c) and (c)(2) would not apply in this context. Is that correct?

P. KING: Yes, that is correct.

Amend SB 398 (house committee printing) by adding the following appropriately numbered SECTIONS to the bill and renumbering subsequent SECTIONS of the bill accordingly:
SECTION ____.  It is the intent of the legislature in enacting Section 35.037, Utilities Code, to allow grocers the ability to deploy back-up generation in the ERCOT power region in areas that have not implemented retail customer choice.
SECTION ____.  Subchapter B, Chapter 35, Utilities Code, is amended by adding Section 35.037 to read as follows:
Sec. 35.037.  INTERCONNECTION AND OPERATION OF CERTAIN DISTRIBUTED GENERATION FACILITIES FOR FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN. (a) In this section:
(1)  "Customer" means a retail electric customer:
(A)  with a distributed generation facility installed on the retail electric customer's side of the meter; and
(B)  that has a primary purpose of or derives a material source of revenue from:
(i)  retail grocery sales; or
(ii)  food manufacturing or distribution for retail grocery sales.
(2)  "Distributed generation facility" means a facility installed on the customer's side of the meter but separately metered from the customer:
(A)  with a nameplate capacity of at least 250 kilowatts and not more than 10 megawatts;
(B)  that is capable of generating and providing backup or supplementary power to the customer's premises; and
(C)  that is owned or operated by a person registered as a power generation company in accordance with Section 39.351.
(b)  This section only applies in the ERCOT power region in areas where retail customer choice has not been implemented.
(c)  A person who owns or operates a distributed generation facility served by a municipally owned utility or electric cooperative in the ERCOT power region may sell electric power generated by the distributed generation facility at wholesale, including the provision of ancillary services, subject to the limitations of this section.
(d)  A person who owns or operates a distributed generation facility may sell electric power generated by the distributed generation facility at wholesale to a municipally owned utility or electric cooperative certificated for retail service to the area where the distributed generation facility is located or to a related generation and transmission electric cooperative. The municipally owned utility or electric cooperative shall purchase at wholesale the quantity of electric power generated by the distributed generation facility needed to satisfy the full electric requirements of the customer on whose side of the meter the distributed generation facility is installed and operated at a wholesale price agreed to by the customer and shall resell that quantity of power at retail to the customer at the rate applicable to the customer for retail service, which must at minimum include all amounts paid for the wholesale electric power, during:
(1)  an emergency declared by the independent organization certified under Section 39.151 for the ERCOT power region that creates the potential for interruption of service to the customer;
(2)  any service interruption at the customer's premises;
(3)  construction on the customer's premises that creates the potential for interruption of service to the customer;
(4)  maintenance and testing of the distributed generation facility; and
(5)  additional times mutually agreed on by the owner or operator of the distributed generation facility and the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative.
(e)  The customer shall provide written notice as soon as reasonably practicable to the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative of a circumstance described by Subsection (d)(3) or (4).
(f)  In addition to a sale authorized under Subsection (d), on request by an owner or operator of a distributed generation facility, the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative shall provide wholesale transmission service to the distributed generation facility owner in the same manner as to other power generation companies for the sale of power from the distributed generation facility at wholesale, including for the provision of ancillary services, in the ERCOT market. The distributed generation facility owner shall comply with all applicable commission rules and protocols and with governing documents of the independent organization certified under Section 39.151 for the ERCOT power region. This section does not require a municipally owned utility or electric cooperative to transmit electricity to a retail point of delivery in the certificated service area of the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative.
(g)  In addition to a sale authorized under Subsection (d) or (f), a municipally owned utility or electric cooperative or related generation and transmission electric cooperative may purchase electric power provided by the owner or operator of the distributed generation facility at wholesale at a mutually agreed on price. The price may be based wholly or partly on the ERCOT market clearing price of energy at the time of day and at the location at which the electric power is made available.
(h)  A municipally owned utility or electric cooperative shall make available a standard interconnection application and agreement for distributed generation facilities that is substantially similar to the commission's interconnection agreement form and consistent with this section to facilitate the connection of distributed generation facilities. A municipally owned utility or electric cooperative shall allow interconnection of a distributed generation facility and provide to a distributed generation facility on a nondiscriminatory basis wholesale transmission service, including at distribution voltage, in the same manner as for other power generation companies to transmit to the ERCOT power grid the electric power generated by the distributed generation facility. A municipally owned utility or electric cooperative may recover from the owner or operator of the distributed generation facility all reasonable costs necessary for and directly attributable to the interconnection of the facility, including the reasonable costs of necessary system upgrades and improvements directly attributable to the distributed generation facility.
(i)  Not later than the 30th day after the date a complete application for interconnection of a distributed generation facility is received, the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative shall provide the applicant with a written good faith cost estimate for interconnection-related costs. The municipally owned utility or electric cooperative may not incur any interconnection-related costs without entering into a written agreement for the payment of those costs by the applicant.
(j)  The process to interconnect a distributed generation facility must be completed not later than the 240th day after the date the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative receives payment of all estimated costs to complete the interconnection, except that:
(1)  the period may be extended by written agreement between the parties; or
(2)  the period may be extended after a good faith showing by the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative that the interconnection requires improvements, upgrades, or construction of new facilities that cannot reasonably be completed within that period, in which case the period may be extended for a time not to exceed the time necessary for the improvements, upgrades, or construction of new facilities to be completed.
(k)  A municipally owned utility or electric cooperative shall charge the owner or operator of a distributed generation facility rates on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis for providing wholesale transmission service to the distributed generation facility owner in the same manner as for other power generation companies to transmit to the ERCOT power grid the electric power generated by the distributed generation facility in accordance with a tariff filed by the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative with the commission.
(l)  The owner or operator of the distributed generation facility shall contract with the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative or the municipally owned utility's or electric cooperative's designee for any scheduling, settlement, communication, telemetry, or other services required to participate in the ERCOT wholesale market, but only to the extent that the utility, cooperative, or designee offers the services on a nondiscriminatory basis and at a commercially reasonable cost. If the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative or the municipally owned utility's or electric cooperative's designee does not offer or declines to offer the services, or fails to do so on a nondiscriminatory basis and at a commercially reasonable cost as determined by quotes from at least three third parties providing the same services, the owner or operator of the distributed generation facility may contract with a third party provider to obtain the services.
(m)  A distributed generation facility must comply with emissions limitations established by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for a standard emissions permit for an electric generation facility unit installed after January 1, 1995.
(n)  A municipally owned utility or electric cooperative is not required to interconnect a distributed generation facility under this section if, on the date the utility or cooperative receives an application for interconnection of the facility, the municipally owned utility or electric cooperative has interconnected distributed generation facilities with an aggregate capacity that equals the lesser amount of:
(1)  5 percent of the municipally owned utility's or electric cooperative's average of the 15-minute summer peak load coincident with the independent system operator's 15-minute summer peak load in each of the months of June, July, August, and September; or
(2)  300 megawatts, adjusted annually by the percentage of total system load growth in the ERCOT power region beginning in 2022.
(o)  A municipally owned utility or electric cooperative that, on the date the utility or cooperative receives an application for interconnection of a distributed generation facility, has interconnected distributed generation facilities with an aggregate capacity less than the threshold described by Subsection (n) is required to increase that capacity only up to that threshold.
(p)  This section is not intended to change registration standards or other qualifications required by the independent organization certified under Section 39.151 for the ERCOT power region related to the participation of distributed generation facilities in the wholesale market. This section is not intended to allow distributed generation facilities to participate in a manner that is not technically feasible or that is otherwise in conflict with wholesale rules and requirements adopted by the independent organization certified under Section 39.151 for the ERCOT power region.

AMENDMENT NO. 2 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE SHINE: This amendment was a good amendment, and it's come into conflict between the senate sponsor of the bill and the same senator's amendment to the bill. I do want to make a statement. The amendment just helps school districts get fair trials on the property value study results by changing the review standard. A limited number of property owners can join in a school district lawsuit challenging the study only if the school allows it and if the property is part of the sample in the study. Property taxes are not changed as a result of the lawsuits. Appraisal and school districts support the change in law, and no one testified against the bill in public hearing. The amendment is a pro school district effort to make the appeal process fair for the property value study that determines state aid, while preventing a punitive result only to school districts. And the reason I'm moving to reconsider this and take it off is because of the conflict that's developed between a state agency and the senate.

Amendment No. 2 was withdrawn.

AMENDMENT NO. 2 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE THIERRY: What this amendment attempted to do is to make sure that we really tackle the issues that are going on with human trafficking at sexually oriented businesses. We received a report, the Texas Legislature, of all of the crimes that currently exist in these establishments, from sexual assault to underage drinking and much more. So what we're trying to do in this amendment––what this amendment was going to do––was to make sure that everyone on the premises was 21 years of age. The bill as it's written makes sure that someone may not be employed at 21, but you could still be 18 at the sexually oriented business. My concern from the beginning—and I have worked on this for multiple sessions—is that the bad actors would circumvent that by having these young girls at strip clubs at the age of 18 and then when law enforcement comes in, they would simply manipulate them to say, "I'm not working. I'm just hanging out." So the point was to make sure that it was 21 across the board.
Members, I believe that our laws should be a reflection of our values in Texas. We've already set the tone that the legal age to even purchase alcohol is 21, and that is because we appreciate the risk that young people encounter when they drink alcohol. We then, last session, went even further and we've changed the age to 21 to smoke tobacco products. And that is because our values said that we appreciate the risk of harm to young people for using tobacco products. We also included vapor products in raising the age to 21.
So members, I feel that this is a loophole that we've left hanging that you can still be under 21. You can't be under 21 to drink the alcohol at the sexually oriented business. You can't be under 21 to smoke the tobacco at a sexually oriented business. But you may be under 21 to be, unfortunately, buck naked in that environment, increasing your risk of sexual assault, abuse, and human trafficking. Unfortunately, members, we really just don't have the will on both sides, is my understanding, to go this far. And although I really feel, as I said, our laws should reflect our values, and in Texas, I think it should be more than a value that you should have to be 21 to enter a sexually oriented business, because no good can come of it under that age.
As my father used to say sometimes when I was out late at night, at a certain point in the evening, no good can come of it. And there's really no good—there's no reason for anyone under the age of 21 to be there because we can appreciate the risk of harm that will happen to them. But members, I respect the bill. It's a good bill to verify their ages, so I am going to withdraw this amendment and hopefully next session, members, we'll be able to come back and do the right thing and reconcile our values with our laws.

Amendment No. 2 was withdrawn.

Announced in the House on May 24, 2021

Representative Slaton raises a point of order against further consideration of CSSB 1728 under Rule 4, Section 40, and Rule 11, Section 2, of the House Rules on the grounds that the committee substitute is not germane.
