Sen. Hughes bill founded on racist language in quitclaim deeds passes Senate

AUSTIN, Texas (KLTV) - A bill which Sen. Bryan Hughes authored after a landowner found racist language in a deed has received final passage in the Texas Senate.

The Senate voted in favor of SB 885 in a 31-0 vote.

The bill would give property owners a way to remove certain language from quitclaim deeds by placing a statute of limitations on them. All that would need to be done to remove said language is the filing of a simple request.

The bill will now go to the Texas House for consideration.
