Bill Caption

Relating to filing requirements for candidates for certain judicial offices.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

This would repeal section 172.021(e) and (g) of the Election Code, setting out petition signature requirements for the petitions that candidates for certain judicial offices must submit with their respective applications for a place on the general primary election ballot, which vary with respect to whether a candidate chooses to submit the applicable filing fee with that application or chooses to file a petition in lieu of the filing fee. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

This legislation does not weigh for or against the principles we consider when providing bill analysis, therefore, we remain neutral.
