LEGISLATIVE BUDGET BOARD
Austin, Texas
 
FISCAL NOTE, 87TH LEGISLATIVE REGULAR SESSION
 
April 12, 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 requiring school districts and open-enrollment charter schools to provide a landline telephone or panic button in every classroom.), As Introduced

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

It is assumed that the costs associated with the bill's provisions relating to requiring school districts and open-enrollment charter schools to provide a landline telephone or panic button in every classroom could be absorbed using existing resources.

Local Government Impact

Schools would need to purchase, install, and maintain landline telephones or panic buttons. The costs associated with this requirement would vary based on a school's size and existing infrastructure beginning with the 2023-2024 school year.
