  S.B. No. 1349
 
 
 
 
AN ACT
  relating to the annexation of certain municipally owned airports.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Subchapter E, Chapter 43, Local Government Code,
  is amended by adding Section 43.1025 to read as follows:
         Sec. 43.1025.  ANNEXATION OF NONCONTIGUOUS MUNICIPALLY
  OWNED AIRPORT BY CERTAIN MUNICIPALITIES. (a)  This section applies
  only to a home-rule municipality that has a population of less than
  10,000 and is located primarily in a county with a population of
  more than 3.3 million.
         (b)  The municipality may annex the unincorporated area of an
  airport owned by the municipality that is noncontiguous to the
  boundaries of the municipality regardless of whether the airport is
  located in the municipality's extraterritorial jurisdiction. The
  annexation may include any unincorporated area located in the
  proximity of the airport.
         (c)  The area described by Subsection (b) may be annexed
  without the consent of the owners or residents of the area, but the
  annexation may not occur unless each municipality in whose
  extraterritorial jurisdiction the area may be located:
               (1)  consents to the annexation; and
               (2)  reduces its extraterritorial jurisdiction over
  the area as provided by Section 42.023.
         (d)  If the area proposed for annexation is completely
  surrounded by territory under the jurisdiction of another
  municipality, regardless of whether that jurisdiction is
  full-purpose, limited-purpose, or extraterritorial, that
  municipality must find that the annexation is in the public
  interest.
         (e)  Following annexation, territory annexed under this
  section is not required to be contiguous to the boundaries of the
  annexing municipality.
         (f)  The annexation of area under this section outside the
  extraterritorial jurisdiction of the annexing municipality does
  not expand the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the municipality.
         (g)  The municipality may annex the area if the area is
  narrower than the minimum width prescribed by Section 43.054.  
  Section 43.055 does not apply to the annexation.
         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.
