No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 1873 would add a new subchapter to Chapter 171 (Abortion) of the Health and Safety Code. This subchapter would require employees and volunteers who work at an abortion clinic to undergo a one-time four hour basic education and training program concerning human trafficking.  

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Public Policy Action does not issue vote recommendations on social issues, therefore we are neutral on SB 1873.
