HB432 by Riddle (Relating to charitable contributions by state employees to assist domestic victims of human trafficking.), As Introduced
The bill would establish the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) as an eligible charitable organization entitled to participate in the state employee charitable campaign for the sole purpose of administering a grant program to award grants to public and nonprofit organizations that provide assistance to domestic victims of human trafficking.
Implementing the grant program under the section of the Government code that this bill amends could result in costs to the agency; however, this analysis assumes that HHSC would not establish the grant program unless it received sufficient funds through the state employee charitable campaign, and therefore costs could be covered through the new revenues. At this time, the costs of a grant program and the revenues cannot be determined.
The Comptroller of Public Accounts indicates the administrative costs of the state employee charitable campaign are recovered from the donations and deductions. Based on the analysis of the Comptroller of Public Accounts, it is assumed any additional work resulting from the passage of the bill could be reasonably absorbed within current resources.
