Bill Caption

Relating to certain waivers by a defendant regarding a community supervision revocation hearing.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication is anticipated on the State or local governments.

Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 1067 would allow a defendant to waive the right to a hearing relating to the revocation of community supervision in the presence of a notary public as an alternative to an in-court waiver.

Analysis: HB 1067 could potentially save time and money by not requiring an individual to be in court to waive the right to a hearing. However, HB 1067 does not fall under our liberty principles. We remain neutral on HB 1067.
