84(R) - 2015
Relating to the electronic filing of bail bonds in certain counties.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Code of Criminal Procedure to permit bail bonds to be filed electronically with the court, judge, magistrate or other officer taking the bond.
Vote Recommendation Notes
HB 2499 establishes an alternative, electronic means of payment for bail bond payments, so we support it on our principle of personal responsibility. Furthermore, the reduction in paperwork such a change may represents supports our limited government stance.
