Bill Analysis

SB 821 would make several updates to statutes governing the operations of children's advocacy centers. These changes include, among other things, the following: (1) requiring centers to adopt a multidisciplinary team working protocol; (2) revising provisions relating to the interagency memorandum of understanding; and (3) revising provisions relating to the center's duties, including review of Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) reports relating to suspected abuse, neglect, or the death of a child.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action has a neutral stance toward SB 821 because it does not hinder or advance any of our principles.
