Criminal Justice Reform saw major gains this session as we abolished a program that adversely affected Texans and strengthened rights for victims of sexual abuse.

House Bill 2048: Repeals the Driver Responsibility Program

House Bill 3809: Extends reporting period allowed for child sexual abuse from 15 to 30 years

House Bill 37: Further criminalizes package piracy, creating a state felony for first-time offenders, commonly referred to as “porch pirates.”

Senate Bill 976: Texas drivers with autism, deafness, PTSD and other communication challenges will be able to make law enforcement aware ahead of time.
