HB3579 by Alonzo (Relating to the expunction of records and files relating to an offense for which a person is arrested.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Code of Criminal Procedure to decrease the waiting periods for formal charging instruments to not be filed before a petition for an expunction can be filed and makes clarifying changes that do not change expunction procedures or eligibility. 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.
