Relating to a reemployment program available to certain veterans placed on community supervision for a misdemeanor offense.
No fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
HB 714 would allow defendants placed on community supervision for a misdemeanor offense who are veterans to enter into a reemployment program. The program provides access to workforce development education and training courses. The court would be required, on successful completion of the program and all other conditions of supervision, to enter an order of nondisclosure with respect to all records of the offense for which the defendant was placed on community supervision.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 714 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
