Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 2719 would require the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to track whether an inmate has been under the conservatorship of child protective services. This bill would require this data to be submitted to the governor among others.

Analysis: HB 2719 is a step in the right direction for a greater understanding of Texas' criminal justice system. However, this bill does not fall under any liberty principles. We remain neutral on HB 2719.
