Legislative Budget Board
HB3880 by Wilson (Relating to information provided to public school students regarding the use of anabolic steroids.), As Introduced

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

The bill would amend Chapter 38 of the Education Code to require the Department of State Health Services' (DSHS) Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division, in conjunction with the University Interscholastic League, to develop and distribute certain information about the use of anabolic steroids.The bill would require the division to determine appropriate grade levels for each school district to provide the information to students. The bill would take effect immediately upon receiving a two-thirds majority vote in each house. Otherwise, the bill would take effect September 1, 2019.
The Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division transferred from DSHS to the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) pursuant to Senate Bill 200, Eighty-fourth Legislature, Regular Session, 2015. As such, this analysis assumes the division under HHSC would be responsible for implementing the provisions of the bill. Based on the Legislative Budget Board's analysis of HHSC, the Texas Education Agency, and the University of Texas System Administration, it is assumed that the provisions of the bill relating to information provided to public school students regarding the use of anabolic steroids could be absorbed using existing resources.

Local Government Impact

No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
