HB133 by Raymond (Relating to the dissemination of criminal history record information by the Department of Public Safety concerning certain intoxication offenses.), As Introduced
The bill would amend Chapter 411 of the Government Code relating to the dissemination of criminal history record information by the Department of Public Safety concerning certain intoxication offenses. The bill would require the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to design and implement a website that would allow any person to electronically search for and receive information described as public information under Chapter 62, Code of Criminal Procedure. The bill would also require DPS to establish a procedure whereby a peace officer or employee of a law enforcement agency would be able to automatically request and receive information regarding criminal history record information concerning certain intoxication offenses.
It is assumed that implementing the provisions of the bill can be absorbed within the existing resources of the agency. The bill would take effect on September 1, 2013.
