HB476 by Farrar (Relating to requiring as a condition of release on parole, mandatory supervision, or community supervision that sex offenders not reside in proximity with other sex offenders.), Committee Report 1st House, As Amended
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Code of Criminal Procedure by requiring as condition of release on parole, mandatory supervision, or community supervision, that persons required to register as sex offenders not live in the same dwelling as another sex offender without a recommendation to the judge by the community supervision and corrections department officer and the express, written approval of the recommendation by the judge. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice does not anticipate a significant fiscal impact from this proposal.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
