But other Texas counties aren’t so sure about it. Harris county in southeast Texas was the first to question the constitutionality of the Family Protection fee. For now, Grayson county commissioners will continue collecting it. But until the Texas Attorney General rules on the fee, they won't distribute the money to five local agencies.
