HB4044 by Dominguez (relating to the funding of community supervision and corrections departments.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
The provisions of the bill addressed by this analysis would amend the Government Code as it relates to the funding of community supervision and corrections departments. Under the provisions of the bill, the Community Justice Assistance Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice would be required to establish a per capita funding formula for community supervision and corrections departments based on the provisions of the bill.
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. 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.
