H.B. No. 361
  relating to the agricultural advisory board of an appraisal
         SECTION 1.  Sections 6.12(b) and (d), Tax Code, are amended
  to read as follows:
         (b)  The [One of the] agricultural advisory board [members
  must be a representative of the county agricultural stabilization
  and conservation service, and the remainder of the] members must be
  landowners of the district whose land qualifies for appraisal under
  Subchapter C, D, E, or H, Chapter 23, and who have been residents of
  the district for at least five years.
         (d)  The board shall meet at the call of the chief appraiser
  at least once [three times] a year.
         SECTION 2.  The change in law made by this Act in the
  qualifications of members of an agricultural advisory board does

  term. The change in law applies only to a member appointed on or
  after the effective date of this Act. This Act does not prohibit a
  person who is a member of the board on the effective date of this Act
  from being reappointed to the board if the person has the
  qualifications required for a member under Section 6.12, Tax Code,
  as amended by this Act.
         SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2011.
