IN RE:
HB3253 by Zerwas (Relating to the notation of death on a birth certificate.), As Introduced

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

The bill would amend the Health and Safety Code relating to the notation of death on a birth certificate. The bill would require a notation of deceased on every personís birth certificate who was born in Texas when death occurs. The bill would take effect immediately if a two-thirds majority vote in both houses of the Legislature is received. Otherwise, the bill would take effect on September 1, 2013. Based on the analysis provided by the Department of State Health Services, it is assumed that the provisions of the bill can be implemented within existing resources.

Local Government Impact

No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
