Relating to pro bono legal services for veterans and service
No fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
SB 2047 would include making grants to provide pro bono legal services to veterans, active duty members, and members of the state military forces among the approved uses of money from the fund for veterans' assistance that is appropriated to the Texas Veterans Commission. This bill would authorize the Texas Coordinating Council for Veterans Services to establish by majority vote a coordinating workgroup on pro bono legal services for veterans, including opportunities and obstacles for providing those services.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 2047 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
