Senate Research Center H.B. 735
AUTHOR'S/SPONSOR'S STATEMENT OF INTENT
During the 78th Legislature, Regular Session, 2003, legislation was enacted that moved Article 4590i, V.T.C.S., to Chapter 74, Civil Practice and Remedies Code. Now there are antiquated cross-references in the statutes.
H.B. 735 updates the citation to Chapter 74, Civil Practice and Remedies Code, in the Business & Commerce Code.
