HB2842 by Chisum (Relating to the criminal penalty for providing false information to outside auditors.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Penal Code by creating the offense of providing false information to outside auditors. It is assumed that the number of offenders convicted under this statute would not result in a significant impact on the programs and workload of state corrections agencies.
The bill would take effect immediately upon receiving a two-thirds majority vote in both houses; otherwise, the bill would take effect September 1, 2005.
