Crime/Law Enforcement

  • HB 17 allows courts to remove district attorneys for misconduct should the D.A. choose not to pursue a certain type of crime. As reported by the Texas Tribune, Republicans in the Texas Legislature authored the bill as a means of “reigning in rogue prosecutors” after those in largely Democratic counties chose not to prosecute abortion-related crimes. The bill was signed by Abbott and takes effect on Sept. 1, 2023.
