County to state: No unfunded mandates

January 23, 2011

A number of routine matters top the agenda for Howard County commissioners Monday morning, as the court looks to lend its support to House Joint Resolution 56, which calls for a constitutional amendment prohibiting unfunded and under‐funded mandates from the state of Texas.

County Judge Mark Barr said the county's resolution, if approved, will help show support for the House resolution, which touches on a sore issue among most county government officials.

“We just want to show our support for this resolution,” Barr said. “Counties face unfunded mandates every year, and it's an issue that should be addressed.”

According to information provided by the Texas Association of Counties (TAC), unfunded or under-funded mandates place an undue strain on taxpayers.
