Bill Caption

Relating to the reporting of certain information involving family violence offenses.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 1528 would require Class C fine-only family violence convictions to be reported to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) for entry into the statewide computerized criminal history system. It would also include misdemeanors punishable by fine only that involves family violence in the list of charges for which the arresting law enforcement agency shall prepare a uniform incident fingerprint card and initiate the reporting process. On disposition of such cases, the clerk of the court would be required to report applicable information regarding the person's citation or arrest and the disposition of the case to DPS.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 1528 as it neither advances nor hinders any of our liberty principles.
