Galveston used to be, maybe still is. My guess would be Dickinson with it's new developments must be also.

Local ISDs on the list include Clear Creek, Friendswood, High Island, Galveston, and Texas City. (Caveat Lector: Districts appearing on this list do not necessarily owe recapture.)
County ISDs not on the list are Dickinson, Hitchcock, Santa Fe.

Carlos I can't see how Dickinson is staying off that list, I guess by having the area east of Hwy 3 and north of FM 517 and San Leon/Bacliff. Their time is coming though with Lago Mar and Tuscan Lakes.
