:the only folks who could tell you 100% is the folks at TX DNR...but, from what I have heard, no a private individual cannot get a permit to keep Drymarchon corais erebennus in the state of TX, regardless of the origin of the animal.
If you want the least hassle and the least expense, look for a cptive born blacktail cribo, Drymarchon corais melanurus. This sub ranges from Mexico through central America and into S. America.
They are large, hardy snakes, usually gentle, and attractive. CB babies go for about $100-$150 ea.
