Relating to a required court finding of abuse or neglect before an individual's name is added to the central child abuse or neglect registry.
Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB 1190, Committee Report 1st House, Substituted : a NEGATIVE impact of ($102,639,718) through the biennium ending August 31, 2023.
The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions of the bill.
HB 1190 would prevent the Department of Family and Protective Service from adding an individual's name to the central registry of individuals found to abuse or neglect a child unless a court of competent jurisdiction enters a final order in a civil, criminal, or juvenile proceeding in which the court finds the individual abused or neglected the child.
HB 1190 benefits the principles of individual liberty and limited government by limiting the ability of government to unilaterally place individuals on registries that can limit their civil liberties in society. Texas Action therefore, supports HB 1190.
