HB1560 by Hernandez (Relating to investment options for property recovered in a suit by a next friend or guardian ad litem on behalf of a minor or incapacitated person.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Property Code to authorize any money recovered in a suit by a minor or incapacitated person with no legal guardian and who is being represented by a next friend or appointed guardian to be invested in a higher education savings plan or a prepaid tuition program. Based on the analysis of the Higher Education Coordinator Board and the Comptroller of Public Accounts, 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.
