LEGISLATIVE BUDGET BOARD
Austin, Texas
 
FISCAL NOTE, 87TH LEGISLATIVE REGULAR SESSION
 
May 6, 2021

TO:
Honorable Harold V. Dutton, Jr., Chair, House Committee on Public Education
 
FROM:
Jerry McGinty, Director, Legislative Budget Board
 
IN RE:
HB204 by Thierry (relating to school districts and open-enrollment charter schools providing panic alert devices in classrooms.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

It is assumed that the costs associated with the bill's provisions relating to school districts and open-enrollment charter schools providing panic alert devices in classrooms could be absorbed using existing resources.

Local Government Impact

Local education agencies (districts and charter schools) would need to purchase and install panic alert devices in all classrooms in the districts if governing boards and trustees do not opt out from this requirement. The costs associated with this requirement would vary based on size and existing infrastructure. The agency does not have a way to estimate these costs.
