Default HB 1271 for Texas

Good Morning!

Does anyone know if this bill had passed yet? When I look it up on line, all I can find is it was introduced, read and sent for corrections, but my fiancé says they heard on the radio that it had passed already?

Any information is appreciated!

No, it hasn’t been voted on. I believe it was heard by the house during this session and sent for corrections and that’s it.

They “hear” all kinds of things in prison. My husband probably heard something new every month while he was in...even when Congress wasn’t in session

But maybe they’ll actually get to it this year!

that's the page I get my info from.

Weepingwillow was right, it's been referred to corrections.

I don't know why, but I have a very good feeling that this will pass. I know how Texas is about their prisons and their inmates, and logic should tell me to be very skeptical... but I can't help it, I just have an intuition that this time, it'll pass.

Or maybe I just really want to believe!

at the end of the text of the bill itself, it says it'll go into effect September 2019. So.... yeah!
