Posted 4/2/2013 3:31:00 PM

Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, has filed a bill that would give the Texas Legislature power to regulate development along Congress Avenue. SB 1272 would prohibit construction 90 feet tall within 60 feet of the west side of Congress Avenue, and within 40 feet and 90 feet tall on the east side of the road.

The bill has been read and referred to the Texas Senate's Economic Development Committee. It would take effect immediately if it receives a two-thirds vote in each chamber. If passed by less than a two-thirds vote, the bill could take effect September 1.
