HB2186 by Guillen (Relating to the payment of a vehicle registration fee by a check drawn against insufficient funds.), As Introduced
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require a county tax assessor-collector to make attempts to contact a person who made a payment for vehicle registration to the assessor-collector and the check or draft used to make payment had insufficient or no funds. After those attempts failed, the tax assessor-collector would be required to include with notification to the applicable law enforcement documentation of attempts to reach the person.
Local Government Impact
Several tax assessor-collectors reported that their office already follows the procedures set forth in the proposed legislation; therefore, there would be no fiscal impact. If a tax assessor-collector is not already following these procedures, there would be only a small fiscal impact associated with these administrative steps.
