No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 76 would require schools to provide information regarding the risks of sudden cardiac arrest, electrocardiogram testing, and the option to take an electrocardiogram along with a physical to students who are participating in a UIL sport. Students would be able to request an electrocardiogram from a licensed health care provider. Schools, school districts, an employee, or the UIL would not be liable in the instance of a student's injury or death in connection to an electrocardiogram or the content or distribution of the information required by this bill or the failure to distribute such information.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 76 because it does not affect any of our principles.
