Senate Bill 100

Senate Bill 100 was enacted in the 82nd Regular Session of the Texas Legislature in 2011. Among other things, SB 100 authorized the City of Austin to move its next election to November 6, 2012, and adjust the terms of office for the mayor and council members to conform to the new election date. Further, SB 100 allows the City of Austin to opt for election of all council members at the same election, superseding City Charter requirements for council elections to be conducted in May and terms to be staggered.
