Bill Caption

Relating to vacancies created because of promotional appointments in certain municipal fire departments.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State or local government.

Bill Analysis

HB 3032 would clarify that when a firefighter department fills a vacancy from a list of eligible candidates for promotion within the department and a subsequent vacancy is created by the filling of the initial vacancy, the subsequent vacancy is considered vacant on the date the initial vacancy was filled. This bill is bracketed for Houston.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would make mostly administrative, clerical, and non-substantive updates to current code with no discernible connection to our liberty principles, therefore we are neutral on HB 3032.
