Annexation

Session 1: Mother May I?: Annexation after HB 347 - What’s left of annexation other than playing in the MUD? HB 347 dramatically changed the landscape for annexation. The scope of authority to annex without a vote has been severely limited. Address what authority is left for annexation after the adoption of HB 347. Session 2: Beyond Boundaries: Land Use in the ETJ - How does the drastic reduction of annexation powers change regulation of land use in the ETJ? In the past, cities may have exercised regulatory power in their ETJs with the assumption that those areas would someday be within city limits and used annexation power to bring already developed areas into their city limits. If that is no longer true, should cities continue to exert regulatory power in their ETJ? Examine how this shifts the negotiation of 1445s between cities and counties.

Responding to Knick

Last summer, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Knick v. Township of Scott, Pennsylvania, overruling takings precedents stretching back to the late 1800s by holding that land use litigants no longer need to seek compensation under state takings law in order to ripen their federal takings claims. Review the practical impacts of Knick to Texas litigants, and address the factors that should be considered by land-use litigants in deciding whether to try a takings claim in state or federal court.

    Excellent. While I groaned at Browning's 4:20 joke, be assured I will use it myself … with no attribution.

    Thoroughly enjoyed all of the topics presented,but especially the family & immigration law one since I have zero exposure to that practice area. All of the presenters were engaging and their senses of humor were most appreciated.

    Very well presented and infomative.

eSupplement to the 35th Annual School Law Conference

Session 1: Advancing the Common Good in the Texas Legislative Process - Texas nonprofits of all sizes and varieties have become more active in the public forum and in the legislative process to advance their missions and the interests of their constituents. How effective are these activities and how does the “nonprofit sector” rank among the other special interest groups that occupy the policy and political landscape? Do charities, state associations and nonprofit activist groups have a special role—a special voice—in the legislative process different from other interest groups? Do “dark money” organizations reflect negatively on other nonprofit organizations? Are nonprofit entities that perform government functions prepared for the related accountability and transparency in their operations? Learn about these questions in general terms with respect to the realities of the legislative process, with specific references to legislation expected in the 2019 session as well as comments on controversies and legislative challenges to the nonprofit sector in past sessions.
