Bill allowing voters in unincorporated areas to decide on annexation dies after filibuster

A bill that would require voter approval before the annexation of an unincorporated area occurs died on the Senate floor during a filibuster by Sen. José Menéndez, D-San Antonio, May 28. Menéndez spoke about military concerns near San Antonio. When land is annexed, he said, zoning regulations can be applied. “Compatible land use is immensely important to the viability of our military installations and to the training areas near Joint Base San Antonio,” Menéndez said.
