Relating to juveniles committed to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 3195 would give the Texas Department of Juvenile Justice more flexibility in determining when to release a juvenile defendant participating in a highly structured residential program. The bill would allow certain records and information concerning a child to be released to an entity assisting the department in providing transition planning and reentry services to the child. The bill would also change from 30 days to 10 days the amount of time the department has to report certain information to the court that committed the child to the department.
Texas Action is neutral on HB 3195 because is administrative or procedural in nature and neither advances nor hinders any of our liberty principles.
