This might affect lot docking in Texas...

Yes it's the same talking head but it might be worth watching for 4 minutes.

It is not clear this applies to private property and most store parking lots are private property. I'm pretty sure Walmart for instance owns many of it's parking lots or they are owned in common with a commercial development.

It's referring only to public property, not private property. However, there are places you, or a trucker, pull off the road (on public property) to sleep and you'll be a criminal. Will rest areas be exempt? The bill doesn't specify.

It's all about getting rid of the homeless by running them out of town. Doesn't solve any problems, just kicks it down the road. Meanwhile someone's kicking their problem to your town.

This thing has "the law of unintended consequences" written all over it.

Target is so-called “homeless camps” and associated messes on the sidewalks.

If the wording is "public place", then it would include public parking lots of merchants. If they change to "public property" that would have a whole different meaning. Walmart may included in the first wording, but may not be in the second wording.

This bill is part of the ongoing battle between the Republican leadership in the Senate and the City of Austin in reference to the city’s failure to restrict homeless individuals from camping near streets, businesses, and other public parts of town. It has general language so it could apply to other cities and public places, but it’s really a local dispute that spotlights the leadership’s concerns about homeless camps. I wouldn’t be at all concerned about any consequences for the RV community!

1. The wording states, iirc, that you can’t stay in a place without the permission of the owner or controlling officer of the place, or some such thing. Note that it is a recognized national policy of Walmart that RVers can stay in their parking lots, but that local managers have the authority to curtail this privilege subject to local conditions or ordinances. So, basically you have permission unless the store Manager has some cause to deny.
2. The Texas State Legislature has a well earned reputation for (first) excitedly passing bills, and (second) thinking about the ramifications.
