TX house move lawsuit filed over eviction deal
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Texas residents will soon be able to move their house if they so choose.
The Texas House of Representatives voted Tuesday to pass a resolution approving a House motion to move the house from its current location in a Dallas suburb.
The House also voted to approve a resolution to allow the city of Dallas to move its housing and business services department to the Dallas suburb if the Texas Legislature passes a bill to do so.
The move comes as state lawmakers and city leaders in Dallas grapple with a surge in homelessness and a lack of housing.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading a legal push to allow homeless people to be housed in local jails and city hall.
The city is seeking approval from the Texas Department of Housing and Urban Development to move to the city from its former home in the Dallas suburbs.
