Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: Statement on the Passage of Senate Bill 26


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today following the unanimous passage of Senate Bill 26 – Honoring Our State Parks Commitment, by Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham:

“I commend Sen. Kolkhorst for the passage of Senate Bill 26 which ensures that the state honors our commitment to provide 100 percent of sales tax revenue from the sale of sporting goods to our state parks and historical sites. SB 26 will help make sure our state parks are safely maintained so all Texans can continue to enjoy them. Our parks and historical sites are a key component of Texas’ heritage and must be preserved for future generations and I commend the senate for re-affirming this commitment.”
