This weekend state lawmakers have a packed calendar as they race to decide bills before the end of the session on May 29.

  One bill they’re scheduled to debate would allow residents to vote on whether they want to be annexed by a city.  The City of San Antonio is lobbying hard to kill the bill.  Some area homeowners are working just as hard to make sure it passes. 

From Texas Standard:

Each legislative session, there are bills that grab the spotlight and then those that move through far more quietly, but still have the potential to affect a lot of lives. That may be the case this session for Senate Bill 715.

The City of San Antonio is giving two square miles of its land to the City of Converse. Converse will also annex three square miles of unincorporated Bexar County. The two cities are entering into an agreement to provide better services to the areas.

The San Antonio City Council has approved the annexation plans of four areas around Bexar County following a 9-2 vote Thursday. The portions include parts of I-10 West near Boerne, U.S. 281 North outside of Loop 1604, and parts of the South Side near Loop 410.

After the discovery of two small children that were chained like animals in Camelot II some are asking if annexation is still being considered for the neighborhood.
