HB934 by Harper-Brown (Relating to requiring the use of an ignition interlock device on conviction of certain intoxication offenses.), As Introduced
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require a court when placing a person on community supervision for certain intoxication offenses to require the person to have an ignition interlock device placed on their vehicle or the vehicle they most often drive. Under current statute, this condition of community supervision is up to the court's discretion.
Local Government Impact
The number of persons who would have to obtain an interlock device at their own expense and provide evidence to the court of the installation would vary by court. A court would experience an increase in administrative costs that could be absorbed within existing resources. No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
