Fiscal Notes

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

Bill Analysis

Summary: SB 1517 would require the Texas Juvenile Justice Department to keep data on how many inmates they place in disciplinary seclusion and how long.

Analysis: It would likely be useful for the Juvenile Justice Department to know the information the legislation would require them to keep, however SB 1517 does not fall under our liberty principles and we remain neutral.
