Proposing a constitutional amendment to allow the transfer of a dog used for county law enforcement purposes to the dog's handler on the dog's retirement.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated, other than the cost of publication. The cost to the state for publication of the resolution is $177,289.
SJR 32 would allow a county to transfer ownership of a dog used for law enforcement purposes to the dog's handler at no cost to the handler.
Texas Action supports SJR 32 because it advances the principle of limited government by providing for a common-sense solution for the retirement of dogs used for law enforcement purposes. Counties are now unnecessarily restrained in their options for dealing with such situations.
