Relating to the Texas Free Enterprise and Antitrust Act of 1983.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 1247 would make certain changes to antitrust investigations conducted by the attorney general. 

The bill would permit service of a civil investigative demand to be made through e-mail or other electronic means if the person being served has consented.

The attorney general would be permitted to file a petition for enforcement in Travis County in addition to other locations already provided for by law.

The bill would limit disclosure of documentary material and stipulate that the attorney general's investigative file and any information or documentary material provided to the attorney general is exempt from disclosure under the public information act. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action is neutral on SB 1247 as it is procedural in nature with no apparent connection to our liberty principles.
