Ursula Parks, Director, Legislative Budget Board
SB416 by West (Relating to prohibiting a person's waiver of a right to an expunction or to an order of nondisclosure with respect to a criminal offense.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Code of Criminal Procedure to prohibit a person's waiver of a right to an expunction of arrest records related to a criminal offense. The bill would also amend the Government Code, to prohibit a person's waiver of a right to an order of nondisclosure of criminal history information which is maintained by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). The Office of Court Administration indicates that implementing bill provisions are not anticipated to have a significant fiscal implication for the court system. In this analysis DPS' ongoing maintenance of criminal history information is not anticipated to have a fiscal implication for the agency.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
