SB721 by Hegar (Relating to disciplinary action by the Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education against certain officers elected under the Texas Constitution.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Occupations Code relating to disciplinary action by the Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TCLEOSE) against certain officers elected under the State Constitution.
The bill would amend Occupations Code, Section 1701.501 (a) and (b) and add (d) that states that TCLEOSE may revoke a license issued under this chapter to an officer elected under the Texas Constitution only if the officer is convicted of a felony or a criminal defense directly involving the person's duties as an officer. The bill would take effect on September 1, 2007.
TCLEOSE anticipates no significant fiscal impact.
