Bill Caption

Relating to court reporter service fees in certain counties.

Fiscal Notes

The Legislative Budget Board does not anticipate any significant fiscal impact. 

Bill Analysis

HB 3361 would require a court that serves a county with a population of 750,000 or more and is located on the Texas-Mexico border, to collect a court reporter service fee of $30 as a court cost in each civil case filed with the clerk to maintain a court reporter who is available for assignment in the court. The current fee is $15. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action is neutral on HB 3361 as it is a local issue which neither advances nor hinders any of our liberty principles.
