No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Based on the LBB's analysis of TWC, this analysis assumes the duties and responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be accomplished by utilizing existing resources.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2017; however, the provisions of the bill would only apply to a wage claim that is filed on or after January 1, 2018. TWC would be required to adopt rules for the administration of the section no later than December 1, 2017.
