HB1102 by Thompson, Senfronia (Relating to the statute of limitations for a suit for personal injury arising from certain offenses constituting sexual abuse of a child.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Civil Practice and Remedies Code to allow the filing of a suit for personal injury at any time for injuries arising from certain offenses constituting sexual abuse of a child and would retain a five year statute of limitations for suits for personal injury arising from sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, trafficking of persons, or compelling prostitution offenses involving adults. Based on the analysis of the Office of Court Administration, duties and responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be accomplished by utilizing existing resources.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
