HB3761 by Guerra (Relating to a feasibility report on the creation of a border agricultural inspection training program.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Agriculture Code to require the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) to submit a report to certain committees of the Legislature on the feasibility of creating a program to train department employees to assist and augment federal agencies with agriculture-related import inspections. Under provisions of the bill, in the feasibility report TDA would be required to determine whether any agreements with the federal government would be required to implement an inspection program. This estimate assumes that the agency could implement the provisions of the bill within existing resources and no significant fiscal impact is anticipated.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
