Bill Caption

Relating to services provided for students at public institutions of higher education who were formerly in foster care.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

HB 1702 would require each institution of higher education's liaison for students that currently are in or were in a conservatorship to annually gather the names and information for incoming and current students, rather than just incoming students, that were formerly in a conservatorship. Additionally, the institution of higher education would be required to post the name and contact information of the liaison on their website, on social media, through e-mail or other means of communication. The institutions would also be required to post information regarding support services and other resources available at the institution to students who were formerly in the conservatorship.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 1702 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
