§ 5.37. COLLECTION OF TAXES AT SOURCE. (a) If the federal
government provides a method of collecting liquor taxes at the
source, the commission may enter contracts and comply with
regulations, even to the extent of abrogating provisions of this
code which are inconsistent with federal law or regulations, in
order to receive the portion of the taxes allocated to the state.
The taxes received shall be distributed as provided in this code.
(b) The commission may acquire by gift, grant, or purchase,
port of entry or other facilities for the administration of the
Alcoholic Beverage Code, including the collection of taxes and
confiscation of unlawful containers and illicit beverages. The
commission may enter into agreements with agencies of the United
States or other persons, if in the judgment of the commission, it
will benefit the state to place facilities under its control
through lease or sale from the United States or other persons. The
commission may expend funds for the purpose of rehabilitating,
renewing, restoring, extending, enlarging, improving, or
performing routine maintenance on facilities under its control.
(c) For the purpose of complying with Chapter 455, Acts of
the 59th Legislature, Regular Session, 1965, as amended (Article
678f, Vernon's Texas Civil Statutes), the commission is considered
to be a public authority and unless the commission requests
facilities to be obtained in accordance with Chapter 258, Acts of
the 48th Legislature, Regular Session, 1943, as amended (Article
666b, Vernon's Texas Civil Statutes), the provisions of that Act do
not apply to the acquisition of facilities under this Act.
(d) The commission is authorized to receive in the form of a
gift, grant, or donation, any funds consistent with the purposes
and goals of the commission and the designation of the grantor.
However, no gift, grant, or donation may be offered or accepted from
any party to any contested case before the agency, or from any party
licensed or regulated by the commission.
