The city attorney in turn questioned the legal department of the Texas Municipal League. In its reply, TML expressed the opinion that state laws which became effective last Aug. 23 did not repeal existing laws un- der which "a large number of Texas cities enforced their sub- division ordinances up to the five-mile limit." The only pertinent change, TML said, was that under the new law cities have injunctive powers within the newly de- scribed areas of "extra ter- ritorial jurisdiction." This area of extra territorial juris- lends two miles beyond the cily limits in the case of Victoria. Beyond this area, the TML said, the city still retains its original powers but could nol enforce its decisions through in- junclive action.
