No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 246 would define sexual contact in the context of the offense of an improper relationship between educator and student. The definition would include any touching by an employee of any primary or secondary school of the anus, breast, or genitals of an enrolled student or student participant of a school or district activity and any touching by any part of the body of the student or participant with the anus, breast, or genitals of the employee with the intent to arouse the sexual desire of any person.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action is neutral on HB 246 as it is definitional only and therefore does not appear to affect our liberty principles.
