Relating to allowing safety recall information to be included in a
vehicle inspection report.
Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for SB711, As Engrossed: an impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2021.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Department of Public Safety of the State of Texas are required to implement a provision of this Act, as applicable, only if the legislature appropriates money specifically for that purpose. If the legislature does not appropriate money specifically for that purpose, the commission and the department may, but are not required to, implement a provision of this Act, as applicable, using other appropriations available for that purpose.
The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of
funds to implement the provisions of the bill.
SB 711 would allow the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to adopt rules providing for the inclusion on a vehicle inspection report a notification regarding whether the vehicle is
subject to a safety recall for which the vehicle has not been
repaired or if the repairs are incomplete.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 711 as it does not affect our liberty principles.
