14 Jul Texas has a new exemption – The Bible!
The Texas Legislature has amended Texas Property Code Section 42.001 to exempt a religious bible or other book containing sacred writings of a religion that is seized by a creditor other than a lessor of real property who is exercising the lessor’s contractual or statutory right to seize personal property after a tenant breaches a lease agreement or abandons the real property. This exemption, which was signed into law (in 2007) is not subject to the general $30,000 or $60,000 limits on the exemptions of certain types of personal property in Texas. The law becomes effective September 1, 2007.
