HB3227 by Howard (Relating to a female inmate's access to programs offered to inmates of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.), As Introduced
The provisions of the bill addressed by this analysis would amend the Government Code as it relates to an incarcerated female's access to programs offered to incarcerated individuals within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
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. This analysis assumes the provisions of the bill would not result in a significant impact on state correctional populations or the demand for state correctional resources.
