AN ACT
  relating to authorizing certain cities to change the date on which
  their general election for officers is held.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Section 41.0052, Election Code, is amended by
  amending Subsection (c) and adding Subsection (f) to read as
  follows:
         (c)  A home-rule city may implement a [the] change authorized
  by this section [Subsection (a)] or provide for the election of all
  members of the governing body at the same election through the
  adoption of a resolution. The change contained in the resolution

  general election date or that requires the terms of members of the
  governing body to be staggered.
         (f)  The governing body of a city with a population of 9,000
  or less, located predominantly in a county that has a total area of
  less than 4,800 square miles, that has adopted a council-manager
  form of government and that holds its general election for officers
  on a date other than the November uniform election date may, not
  later than December 31, 2024, change the date on which it holds its
  general election for officers to the November uniform election
  date. Subsections (b), (c), and (d) apply to the change of an
  election date under this subsection.  This subsection expires
  January 1, 2025.
