HB1014 by Canales (Relating to the expunction of arrest records and files relating to certain nonviolent offenses.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Code of Criminal Procedure relating to the expunction of arrest records and files relating to certain non-violent offenses.
It is assumed that persons would be eligible for expunction under the terms of the bill only for offenses committed after the effective date of the bill. Since the bill stipulates that a period of not less than five years for misdemeanors and 10 years for felonies must pass after the date of discharge or dismissal from deferred adjudication community supervision for the offense, it is assumed that no significant impact on the volume of expunction requests will take place in the next five years.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
