WHEREAS, The motorcycle run traces the route of the Texas Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway, which is the portion of the United States Highway 83 located in Texas and extends from the Oklahoma state line at the top of the Texas Panhandle to Brownsville at the southern tip of the state; the riders cover the route over the course of several days; and

STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

Senator Hegar submitted the following statement of legislative intent for CSHBi865:

Concerns have been raised regarding the exclusion of "dogs and cats" in the definition of what is not to be considered an invasive species. Under current statute, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Department of Agriculture are the only agencies authorized to add a specific species to the invasive species list. CSHBi865 does not alter this statute nor does it allow the management and control of any species not already included on the list. I am confident that neither dogs nor cats are in danger of being added to the invasive species list and therefore do not believe it is necessary to include them in the language of the bill.
