SB 968 - STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT

REPRESENTATIVE DEAN: Chair Klick, will this bill help patients like those who had cancer treatments and surgeries scheduled during the pandemic, and in the confusion of what was elective and what was not, their surgeries got postponed?

REPRESENTATIVE KLICK: I believe it would. I had a constituent that was diagnosed with breast cancer at the very beginning of the pandemic, and because she was electing to have immediate reconstructive surgery, her physician would not do the procedure. She ended up going out of state to have much-needed treatment. So I do believe that this would be helpful in those circumstances.

DEAN: Yes, ma'am. Did you know that I have a constituent in Longview who dealt with the exact situation? Her name is Tina Moody Bryant. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and was awaiting surgery scheduled for March 2020, which was postponed after the governor's orders. I'd like to thank you and Senator Kolkhorst for this bill on behalf of Mrs. Bryant and all of the Texans who this will protect in the future.

Representative Dean moved to print remarks between Representative Klick and Representative Dean on SB 968.

SB 1365 ON THIRD READING
(Huberty, Dutton, K. King, Murphy, and Oliverson - House Sponsors)

SB 1365, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to public school organization, accountability, and fiscal management.

SB 1365 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE HUBERTY: SB 1365 relates to the organization's accountability and the management. We talked about this yesterday, specifically relating to the fixes to the accountability system and improvements to the accountability system that we voted on last night.

REPRESENTATIVE WU: I really appreciate all the work. I know you've probably lost a lot of sleep working on this bill, and I really appreciate it. You know, I was a hard no on this bill when it first came out. And I think, just listening to you last night, I think maybe my mind is changed on it. I do have one question that I wanted to ask you last time, but because of the rush, I didn't get to. Is there anything in this bill that is retroactive or backward looking?

HUBERTY: No.

WU: Is there anything in this bill that would tamper with ongoing litigation or existing fights with the DA and school districts?

HUBERTY: No.

(Harris in the chair)

REPRESENTATIVE M. GONZÁLEZ: Thank you so much for doing all the work that you all have done on this bill. I know it's been a team effort. As you know, you have really changed the bill a lot from what it came over from the senate. Have you talked to folks about conference and your plans if the senate doesn't concur? Have you had conversations or what are your conversations regarding conference and concurring once this bill leaves this chamber?

HUBERTY: Yes, thank you, Representative. Our goal is to protect the work that has been done and agreed to by this body. My goal is that we don't have to go to conference. I've had conversations with Senator Bettencourt and we've gone through this to continue our conversations, but my goal is that we hope that the senate will accept the bill as it comes over and concur.

M. GONZÁLEZ: So we don't have a guarantee from the senate that they are going to concur?

HUBERTY: I don't think the senate ever guarantees anything, but my hope is that they understand the work that's been put into this. The groups that have worked on this with us have been in conversations with them as well. I've had some very good conversations with, as you know, Commissioner Morath and he's been working with us collaboratively and all the groups—TASA, TASB, TSA—and everybody that's been a part of that, having those conversations. I spoke to Senator Bettencourt this morning specifically about that. He just wants an outline of what's in there, and specifically, it has some questions. He knows that it's a good bill that we've provided back to him, so my hope is that Senator Bettencourt will be very supportive of us as we move forward.

M. GONZÁLEZ: I just think it's really important that if they don't concur that we maintain the changes that you've made because I think that's a lot of promises that were made to members, and I appreciate you. And I agree with you––you can never get a guarantee sometimes with the senate––so, yes.

HUBERTY: Well, but my guarantee to you is that we're going to maintain the work that we've done here collaboratively with everybody here in this body.

REPRESENTATIVE BERNAL: Very quickly, Chairman Huberty, I just want to go through a few things to make sure that we get it on record and the body understands. The first is with regard to the changes that you were just talking about with Representative González. A lot of people are curious about the fate of what was known as the Hinojosa amendment, regarding the powers of the TEA commissioner. Is that in this version of the bill?

HUBERTY: Yes, sir. It is.

BERNAL: Okay, and can you explain very quickly, very briefly, what that does?

HUBERTY: Yes. Representative Hinojosa and Representative Turner had come to us earlier in the week having some concerns about a very specific portion of the language where they believed that it created the opportunity to give unlimited—or potentially the view of unlimited––control on takeovers by the commissioner of education. As a result of that, we struck that language and just cited Section 39(a) of the Education Code that is prescriptive as to what you can and can't do. I believe, however, that one of the other things we agreed to do as we went forward during the interim is that we would go through and create kind of a, sort of like the Penal Code does––if you do this, what is the implication associated with that? I think that that's a good idea, and that's something we can work on. And so as we come back, whether it's in a special later on or if it's––well, certainly, during a special we'll be here––but in a regular session, that could be something that's worked on during the interim and understand what the impact of those things would be.

BERNAL: Right. Thank you for that. Just to be clear, if this bill passes, relative to today, won't it be harder for TEA to assign a conservator to an individual campus?

HUBERTY: Yes, a conservator. Yes.

BERNAL: And if this bill passes, relative to today, won't it be harder for TEA to take over a school district?

HUBERTY: Yes.

BERNAL: To assign a board of managers?

HUBERTY: Absolutely, because of the provisions that Representatives King and Allison worked on, specifically on the due process, where we created the hearings and so and then we also created the additional appealable process specifically with the district courts. By the way, something that Chairman King pushed for and Representative Allen pushed for is that now those appeals will be heard in their home districts.

BERNAL: That's right. And then my last question is, there's been a lot of talk about multiple D's and multiple F's that a campus can receive. Can you explain to the body––this is my last question––can you explain to the body what happens when a campus gets a C? So if they're D, D, C or D, F, C or F, F, C––what happens when the C happens?

HUBERTY: Yes, so two things. As you know, in the summer of 2020, the commissioner had come to me and asked specifically about creating a rule on this D/F, and we told him no. We told him no as a committee. We briefed the committee. We said no, we want to deal with this legislatively. So we've improved it. Now you have two D's in a row before there are any sanctions. And then if you get up to five D's, you have a process to work with. That's something that Representative VanDeaver, Representative Bell, and Representative Buckley worked on during this process. So we made it harder for them to be able to do it but to be able to create an opportunity to rectify that themselves. And as you know, what's happening over in the senate right now is they're working on HB 1525, and they're taking your bill—which is HB 220—that actually lets you reconstitute a school within their district without turning it over to a charter or anybody else associated with that. And so we fixed that. And your specific question on the C is that if you have a D, D, whatever it is, or an F or whatever, it goes through the process. You go to a C, you come out of sanctions immediately.

BERNAL: Right. So if you get a C, it completely resets.

HUBERTY: Resets the clock.

BERNAL: That is the new day.

HUBERTY: That is correct. Members, thank you for the opportunity to get this passed. I think this is important as we go forward. I want to thank Representative Bell, Representatives Buckley, VanDeaver, and Bernal, Chairman Dutton, all the members of the committee, Representative Allison and Representative King, all who worked really hard collaboratively to get this passed.

SB 1936 ON THIRD READING
(Cook and Swanson - House Sponsors)

SB 1936, A bill to be entitled An Act relating to the beginning and ending possession times in certain standard possession orders in a suit affecting the parent-child relationship.

SB 1936 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE RAMOS: We both served in Juvenile Justice and Family Issues, and there were similar bills that discussed conservatorship. And could you explain to the body what exactly your bill does? You said noncustodial and custodial. For those of us in here who are not family law attorneys, what does that mean?

REPRESENTATIVE COOK: So a noncustodial parent, obviously, is the parent that does not have custody. And so the presumption is that a noncustodial parent will have a standard possession order. And currently under Texas law, the noncustodial parent has the option to opt in to certain expanded periods of possession. This bill makes it to where it's a opt-out as opposed to opting in.

RAMOS: So if I am, let's say, in a situation where––many times it's the father—I get to have the child, as we know, every other weekend, right? First, third, and fifth weekend of the month–-typically, it could be Friday to Sunday night. What does this bill do regarding that visitation schedule that we, pretty much, is what we call standard? You're saying here that that's the default, but what your bill is going to do is make the extended standard default, correct?

COOK: Yes, exactly.

RAMOS: And the extended standard visitation schedule looks like what?

COOK: As you said, first, third, and fifth weekends. Usually, it's 6 p.m. on Friday evening till Sunday at 6 p.m. and Thursday evening 6-8 p.m. This bill would make it to where a noncustodial parent would be able to pick their child up from school and return to school.

RAMOS: And that would just be the default and the parent would have to opt out of that. So it allows them to spend more time with their child on those alternative weekends.

COOK: Absolutely.

RAMOS: Well, as a family law practitioner, I think this is wonderful that the parents are provided an option here to opt out if they want fewer weekends. I know that there is a lot of miscommunication or misunderstanding when parents are not able to exercise or don't want to exercise more visitation or possession. And unfortunately, there have been some threats to, you know, go to a separate bill when it comes to more, 50/50, and all of that stuff. We had a hearing in JJFI where a lot of people testified they wanted more. But there was, let's say––in the best interest of the child. That's what a family law attorney looks at, right? And a judge––the best interest of the child?

COOK: Correct.

RAMOS: And your bill here is really addressing the best interest of the child so that they can spend more time with that parent, either mother or father.

COOK: That's correct.

RAMOS: And many times the best interest of the child is not one night, one house; one night, the other; one night, the next; one night, the next. This allows for a child to have consistency and regularity in their schedule but also allows them to spend valuable time with the other parent, correct?

COOK: I believe that's correct as well.

RAMOS: Well, I think this is a wonderful bill. I think it's very good for family law for families in Texas.

Amendment No. 1

Representatives Middleton and Raymond offered the following amendment to SB 1936:

Amend SB 1936 (senate engrossed printing) on third reading as follows:
(1)  On page 1, between lines 17 and 18, insert the following subsection:
(a-1)  If a court appoints the parents joint managing conservators under Section 153.134, and each conservator resides not more than 50 miles from the primary residence of the child, a court shall first consider an order that provides that each conservator has the right to equal possession of the child under a schedule specified by the court or a schedule agreed to by both conservators. If a court finds that equal possession of the child is not in the best interest of child, the court may enter an altered standard possession order under Subsection (a), and shall make written findings of the reasons equal possession of the child is not in the best interest of the child available to each party.
(2)  On page 1, line 18, strike "Subsection (a)" and substitute "Subsections (a) and (a-1)".

Amendment No. 1 - Point of Order

Representative Anchia raised a point of order against further consideration of Amendment No. 1 under Rule 11, Section 2, of the House Rules on the grounds that the amendment is not germane. The point of order was withdrawn.

(b)  Notwithstanding Section 127.201, not later than 24 hours after all ballots have been counted in an election, the general custodian of election records in each county shall conduct by hand a partial count of ballots cast for a selected number of ballot boxes. Each ballot box selected must be from a polling place in which an auditable voting system was used, and the number of ballot boxes selected for the partial count shall be the greater of:
(1)  two; or
(2)  10 percent of the number of ballot boxes used in the election, rounded up to the nearest even number.

The chairs shall alternate selections, beginning with the chair of the party that received the most votes in the county in the most recently preceding gubernatorial election, until the number of ballot boxes selected for the partial count has satisfied the requirement of Subsection (b).

HR 253
(by Parker)

HR 253, Recognizing November 2021 as Ukrainian Genocide Remembrance Month.

HR 253 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE PARKER: HR 253 recognizes November 2021 as Ukrainian Genocide Remembrance Month. From 1929 to 1953, Joseph Stalin ruled over the Soviet Union as a communist dictator. From '32 to '33, Stalin created an artificial famine in Ukraine, which resulted in the death of millions of innocent men, women, and children. This tragic event is known as the Holodomor. It's incumbent upon the Texas Legislature that we learn from the past and recognize the folly of authoritarian regimes. Stalin sought to punish Ukrainians for resisting his bright future of socialism. To this day, the Russian government denies that the Holodomor was genocide. Before the famine even began, Soviet secret police drove families off of their farms and deported thousands to Siberia. Ukrainian intellectuals and church leaders who recognized the cultural autonomy of Ukraine were subject to arrest and imprisonment throughout the 1920s. As people tried to flee this famine, the secret police used a draconian system of internal passports to keep people in Ukraine, thus sealing the fates of millions of innocent lives. Members, we must never forget the millions of victims who perished as a result of such despicable acts.
