85(R) - 2017
Relating to settlement of claims and actions against a governmental unit.
From the LBB: No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
This bill would prohibit a unit of government from entering into a settlement of equal to or more than $30,000 where a condition of the settlement requires a nondisclosure agreement.
Vote Recommendation Notes
This bill promotes limited government by preventing settlements for sums of $30,000 or more from including a nondisclosure stipulation. This enhances transparency in government. We support HB 53.
