H.B. No. 3410
  relating to alternative procedures for plat revision of residential
  areas by a county.
         SECTION 1.  Section 232.0095, Local Government Code, is
  amended by amending Subsection (b) and adding Subsection (c) to
  read as follows:
         (b)  As an alternative to the provisions in Section 232.009
  governing the revision of plats, a county by order may adopt the
  provisions in Sections 212.013, 212.014, 212.015, and 212.016
  governing plat vacations, replatting, and plat amendment [within a
  municipality's jurisdiction]. A county that adopts the provisions
  in those sections may approve a plat vacation, a replat, and an
  amending plat in the same manner and under the same conditions,
  including the notice and hearing requirements, as a municipal
  authority responsible for approving plats under those sections.
         (c)  Instead of the purpose described by Section
  212.016(a)(10), an amended plat may be approved and issued by the
  county to make necessary changes to the preceding plat to create six
  or fewer lots in the subdivision or a part of the subdivision
  covered by the preceding plat if:
               (1)  the changes do not affect applicable county
  regulations, including zoning regulations if the county has
  authority to adopt zoning regulations; and
               (2)  the changes do not attempt to amend or remove any
  covenants or restrictions.
         SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect immediately if it receives
  a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as
  provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution.  If this
  Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this
  Act takes effect September 1, 2007.
