No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Current Texas statutes states that the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (“commission”) “shall adopt rules establishing requirements for reactivation of a peace officer's license after a break in employment.” HB 872 extends this current provision by forcing the commission to reactivate a peace officer’s license by changing the law to require reactivation for officers who fulfill a list of requirements. This bill does not promote the autonomy of the established bureaucracy, but places further authority into the hands of elected officials. We support this bill for preserving limited government.
