Honorable Will Hartnett, Chair, House Committee on Judicial Affairs
John Keel, Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB935 by Casteel (Relating to the creation of magistrates in Comal County.), As Introduced
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Under the bill, the Commissioners Court of Comal County may authorize the judges of the district and statutory county courts in Comal county to appoint one or more part-time or full-time magistrates. The bill would take immediate effect if it receives a two-thirds vote in each house; otherwise, it would take effect September 1, 2003.
Local Government Impact
Because the bill would not have statewide impact on units of local government of the same type or class, no comment from this office is required by the rules of the House/Senate as to its probable fiscal implication on units of local government.
