H.B. No. 2945
  relating to the use of the juvenile case manager fund.
         SECTION 1.  Article 102.0174(g), Code of Criminal Procedure,
  is amended to read as follows:
         (g)  A fund created under this section may be used [only] to
  finance the salary, benefits, training, travel expenses, office
  supplies, and other necessary expenses relating to the position of
  a juvenile case manager employed under Article 45.056. If there is
  money in the fund after those costs are paid, on approval by the
  employing court, a juvenile case manager may direct the remaining
  money to be used to implement programs directly related to the
  duties of the juvenile case manager, including juvenile alcohol and
  substance abuse programs, educational and leadership programs, and
  any other projects designed to prevent or reduce the number of
  juvenile referrals to the court. The fund may not be used to
  supplement the income of an employee whose primary role is not that
  of a juvenile case manager.
         SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect immediately if it receives
  a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as
  provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution.  If this
  Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this
  Act takes effect September 1, 2015.
