S.B. No. 1551
  relating to the prosecution of the criminal offense of failure to
  identify; creating a criminal offense.
         SECTION 1.  Section 38.02, Penal Code, is amended by adding
  Subsections (b-1), (b-2), (d-1), and (f) and amending Subsection
  (c) to read as follows:
         (b-1)  A person commits an offense if the person:
               (1)  is an operator of a motor vehicle, as defined by
  Section 32.34, who is lawfully detained by a peace officer for an
  alleged violation of a law;
               (2)  fails to provide or display the person's driver's
  license on the officer's request for the license; and
               (3)  intentionally refuses to give the person's name,
  driver's license number, residence address, or date of birth to the
  peace officer on the officer's request for that information.
         (b-2)  For purposes of Subsection (b-1)(3), giving a peace
  officer a residence address that is different from the address
  associated with the person's driver's license does not constitute a
  refusal to give the person's residence address in violation of that
  provision if the address given to the officer is the person's actual
  residence address.
         (c)  Except as provided by Subsections [Subsections] (d) and
  (d-1) [and (e)], an offense under this section is:
               (1)  a Class C misdemeanor if the offense is committed
  under Subsection (a) or (b-1); or
               (2)  a Class B misdemeanor if the offense is committed
  under Subsection (b).
         (d-1)  An offense under Subsection (b-1) is a Class B
  misdemeanor if it is shown on the trial of the offense that the
  actor gave a false or fictitious name to the peace officer during
  the commission of the offense.
         (f)  Subject to Subsection (e), if conduct that constitutes
  an offense under Subsection (b-1) also constitutes an offense under
  any other law, the actor may be prosecuted under that subsection,
  the other law, or both.
         SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2023.
