Bill Caption

Relating to the execution of a warrant issued for certain individuals who violate a condition of release on parole or to mandatory supervision.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 785 would require law enforcement agencies to execute, as quickly as practicable, a warrant for the return of a releasee in the super-intensive supervision program based on a violation of parole or the electronic monitoring of the releasee. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action recommends supporting HB 785 because it promotes our principle of limited government. It is the role of the government to enforce its laws and provide an adequate, fair, and efficient justice system. This bill would help achieve that purpose.
