Summary: If a student has committed an offense of truancy that was aided by their parents and the parents are prosecuted in court, HB 1022 would specify that if the case is heard in a justice court, the court has to be within the county precinct where the parent lives or the precinct where the school is located instead of any precinct.
Analysis: HB 1022 would make an administrative change to where a justice court can hear a truancy case dealing with a parent. With the intent to eliminate forum shopping, this legislation neither offends nor directly supports our liberty principles. We stand neutral on HB 1022.
