No significant fiscal implication to the State or units of local government is anticipated.
HB 3791 is in line with our limited government principle. The people of Texas should be entitled to the right to view evidence that pertains to any accusation against them by the State or those enforcing the State’s laws. As the US Supreme Court in Brady v. Maryland has stated that suppression of evidence denies the defendant “due process of law” which is every citizen’s constitutionally based entitlement. This additional statute reaffirms the protection that US constitution gives to every American. We support this bill for preserving individual liberty and limited government.
