If you’re under 16 and want to stay out past midnight, you’re still out of luck even if you’re not in Houston.
Harris County Commissioners Court voted 4-1 today to extend the midnight-6 a.m. curfew for another three years. Here’s County Judge Ed Emmett’s press release on the vote.
The one vote against the proposal came from county commissioner Sylvia Garcia – who didn’t think it went far enough. She wanted the county to extend its curfew to cover all school hours.
Law-enforcement officials have issued 2,500 or so curfew-related citations in the past three years, Emmett says.
