Default Senate Bill 55 and House Bill 1274

I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about these two bills, or may have some knowledge as to how I can make contact with a reliable source that's knowledgeable about them. My husband falls under both bills where they clearly state if one has gone to prison as a minor upon seeing Parole, they the parole board must adhere to these bills if they apply to a particular individual.

I have written to a couple of writers that presented the information about these bills through Dallas Morning News, now I need someone that's more proficient about these bills, because I need their help. If you have any advise please let me know right away. Thanks

mrscehouston - I've moved your post to make it it's own thread. Hopefully someone will see it this way.

Good luck!

SB55 deals with the Employee Retirement System. I am guessing OP means SB556, which is the companion filing.

The House Bill has been referred to Calendars but with no action for almost two weeks. The Senate Bill was referred to Criminal Justice in February and has had no action since then.

The lack of action since the referral to Calendars suggests that it doesn't gain any further traction since the Session is very rapidly approaching Sine Die.

Legislative dates of interest are on this .pdf: http://www.tlc.state.tx.us/dates/dat...20interest.pdf

It should be added that this legislation, if passed, does not really do much more than add words to the book. It does not obligate the Board to vote favorably. It DOES close a problematic disconnect that has existed for many years between statute and Board Rule by changing from 'convicted of' to 'serving a sentence for' given that juveniles adjudicated delinquent and later transferred to TDCJ were never actually convicted of an offense.
