You are right, in that FCC Licensed Ops need to be exempted from this ordinance.
The San Antonio ordinance on operating in School Zones is 19-254 and it does not exempt FCC licensed operators.
The Texas Transportation Code section 545-425 *does* exempt FCC licensed operators, and it specifically pre-empts local ordinances.
We intend to work with the writers of the ordinance to get the right language in place. ARRL Volunteer Counsel will be working with some local hams.
SA hams who would like to help with this should contact AB5XZ@arrl.net

Looks like some SA Hams need to call their City Council person and express concerns, and have a clarification added to exempt FCC Licensed Operators, much as they did with the school zone Ordinance.
