Texas Legislative Council

General Code Update Bill

Background

During each interim the council, as part of its duties relating to continuing statutory revision, prepares a general code update bill for introduction during the next regular legislative session. The purposes of the bill are to nonsubstantively codify laws that should be included in previously enacted codes, appropriately renumber duplicate official citations, correct enacted codes to conform the codes to the source law from which they were derived, and revise codes or parts of codes enacted during the preceding legislative session to incorporate enactments of that session.


The General Code Update Bill for the 86th Legislative Session is currently being prepared.
