HB424 by Burkett (Relating to the sex offender status of a person who becomes a resident of certain group home facilities.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
The bill would require the director of a group home to determine whether a person either
requesting to live at a group home or assigned to live at a group home is registered as a sex
offender under Chapter 62, Code of Criminal Procedure, using a website maintained by the
Department of Public Safety, and to notify current residents of the group home and their legal guardians, if applicable, if the person is found to be a sex offender.
The Department of Aging and Disability Services does not anticipate any significant fiscal impact
as a result of complying with the provisions of the bill.
