    Texas Bill 987 ---- To be voted on soon

    According to a Television discussion this bill will prohibit any over night
    parking in any public spot, which includes Walmart's, Cracker Barrels etc.
    It is intended as a solution to the homeless in the major cities from living
    in their vehicles. But as many laws do RVER's may be collateral damage.

    If this is incorrect will some of our Texas friends let us know?

    Thanks and happy camping:

    We have such a law in our city. So the local WalMart can't allow overnight camping. I know the Home Depot lot has had RVs ticketed in the past.

    It's popping up in communities in PA too. One-size fits all approach overlooking the non-offending (I hope).

    I think itís Seattle where a judge ruled that RVís on public streets are considered to be peopleís homes. They are not subject to ticketing or towing.

    Two for the price of one. Causes collateral damage, and it will still be completely ineffective. "If we just make being homeless illegal, there will be no more homeless people!" Brilliant!

    That was a question that went answered during the discussion I watched.

    Being a Texas resident I'm not opposed to this Bill. In our travels we have witnessed Wall Mart parking lots containing overnight, weekly, monthly etc. RV's that look pretty seedy. I would prefer to move those problems to an adjoining state LOL. I'm thinking it's better to take advantage of our state parks system or commercial camp grounds.

    The bill is for any "Public location". This means private property is exempt. No reason to fret... Texas is not going to tell a private business to not allow overnight parking... think about it... that would mean that all RV parks would not be allowed to accept overnight parking or that no one could overnight at the Texas Motor Speedway...

    It is meant to keep people from parking in public streets or at city parks (unless the city has made accommodations for RV parking)

    According to the discussion I listened to places like Home Depot, Walmart, restaurants while being private property is where the public gathers so
    those places are included in the Law.

    You raise valid points.
