Fiscal Notes

Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB 3710, Committee Report 1st House, Substituted: a negative impact of ($600,000) through the biennium ending August 31, 2021.

The agency is required to implement a provision of this Act only if the legislature appropriates money specifically for that purpose. If the legislature does not appropriate money specifically for that purpose, the agency may, but is not required to, implement a provision of this Act using other appropriations available for that purpose. 

Bill Analysis

HB 3710 would require the Texas Education Agency to select three of the secondary-level end-of-course tests required by state law, develop three electronic tutorials that provide a review of each course, and make the tutorial available to public school districts.
