HB2481 by Metcalf (relating to the administration of a veterans treatment court program.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
The provisions of the bill addressed by this analysis would amend the Government Code as it relates to the veterans treatment court program. Under the provisions of the bill, a defendant placed into a veterans treatment court program would be allowed to attend the program in a county other than the one in which the defendant works or resides.
This analysis assumes the provisions of the bill would not result in a significant impact on the demand for state correctional resources. The bill does not expressly create a felony offense, increase the punishment for an existing misdemeanor to that of a felony, increase the punishment for an existing felony offense or category of felony level offenses, or change the eligibility of a person for felony community supervision, parole, or mandatory supervision.
