SB1531 by Hancock (Relating to the eligibility for certain occupational licenses and the use of a person's criminal history as grounds for certain actions related to the license.), As Engrossed
The provisions of the bill addressed by this analysis would amend the Occupations Code to eliminate the conviction for certain criminal offenses as a basis for certain actions related to certain occupational licenses.
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.
