LEGISLATIVE BUDGET BOARD
Austin, Texas
 
FISCAL NOTE, 87TH LEGISLATIVE REGULAR SESSION
 
May 19, 2021

TO:
Honorable Bryan Hughes, Chair, Senate Committee on State Affairs
 
FROM:
Jerry McGinty, Director, Legislative Budget Board
 
IN RE:
HB4555 by Guillen (Relating to an application for a place on a ballot filed by a person convicted of a felony.), As Engrossed

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

This bill would amend the Election Code as it relates to an application for a place on a ballot filed by a person convicted of a felony. Under the provisions of the bill, a candidate with a previous felony conviction would have to provide proof of eligibility for public office in their application for candidacy.

The Secretary of State indicates the modifications outlined in the bill's provisions would not result in a significant fiscal impact.  This analysis assumes the provisions of the bill addressing felony sanctions would not result in a significant impact on the demand for state correctional resources.

Local Government Impact

No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
