CHAPTER 36. BRIBERY AND CORRUPT INFLUENCE
§ 36.07. ACCEPTANCE OF HONORARIUM. (a) A public servant commits an offense if the public servant
solicits, accepts, or agrees to accept an honorarium in consideration
for services that the public servant would not have been requested to
provide but for the public servant's official position or duties.
(b) This section does not prohibit a public servant from
accepting transportation and lodging expenses in connection with a
conference or similar event in which the public servant renders
services, such as addressing an audience or engaging in a seminar,
to the extent that those services are more than merely perfunctory,
or from accepting meals in connection with such an event.
(c) An offense under this section is a Class A misdemeanor.
