Honorable Joseph Pickett, Chair, House Committee on Transportation
John S. O'Brien, Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB470 by Hartnett (Relating to the denial, suspension, or revocation of a motor vehicle inspection station certificate or an inspector certificate.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Transportation Code to prohibit the certification of persons convicted of a felony as a motor vehicle inspection station operator or motor vehicle inspector. The Department of Public Safety indicates that although the bill would likely require processing of additional suspension cases and possibly generate a minimal number of additional administrative hearings, the costs associated with such operations could be reasonably absorbed within current agency resources without incurring significant fiscal impact.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
