HB3787 by Perry (Relating to the determination of an applicant's eligibility for any program administered by the Health and Human Services Commission.), As Engrossed
The bill would amend the Transportation Code to authorize the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to provide information related to a driver's license applicant's social security number to the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) for the purpose of assisting HHSC in determining eligibility for health and human services programs.
The bill would take effect immediately if it receives a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house. If not, the bill would take effect September 1, 2013.
HHSC and the Office of the Attorney General indicate any additional work resulting from the passage of the bill could be reasonably absorbed within current resources. DPS estimates there would be a minimal, one-time cost associated with implementing the provisions of the bill.
