Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated

Bill Analysis

This bill would modify the code of criminal procedure and allow an offense related to obstruction or retaliation to be prosecuted in any county in which either, the harm occurred, or the threat to do harm originated or was received. Currently there is no venue specified for a crime under this offense. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill is procedural and does not appear to have any impact on our liberty principles therefore we remain neutral.
