Center for Local Governance Policy Analyst Allegra Hill presented testimony on involuntary annexation to the Texas Senate Committee on Intergovernmental Relations. Hill's testimony, in part, reads:
Is the invasion of people’s rights—to the extent such an invasion is permitted under current statute—justified in light of the desire for municipal growth? Do the ends justify the means? I would simply submit to you that the answer is no; municipal expansion does not justify bowling over the minority, and depriving people of the right to vote.
