It proposes to increase the marriage license fee from $7.50 to $11.50 in order to generate $750,000 a year for the state health department's operation of 12 battered spouse shelters. The House bill would increase marriage license fees by $2.50. $2.00 of this amount would go to a "domestic violence fund for the sole purpose of providing services and shelter to victims of domestic violence and their families." The bill is still in the House Committee on Intergovernmental Affairs. H.B. 1075-Lance Lalor and others S.B. 594-Chet Brooks These bills, which will become effective as law September 1, 1979, provide state aid for community shelters for the victims of domestic violence and their families. The Department of Human Resources will be able to use what funds are available to expand services at Texas shelters. Victims of family violence will be able to seek temporary protective court orders without filing for divorce or filing a lawsuit. H.B. 558-Bill Presnal This is a general appropriations bill which includes many areas. The Senate Finance Committee, at the urging of Senator Chet Brooks, added $200,000 each year (1980-81) to the Department of Human Resources budget for funding family violence activities. This money will be used to fund the provisions of H.B. 1075. Senate and House conferees are now working out the differences in their bills. H.B. J076-Lance Lalor and others S.B. 595-Chet Brooks These bills would allow members of a household to seek a court order restraining another family member from abusing them. The court could award an abused family member temporary custody of the children, possession of the house, or support payments during a "cooling-off" period. If the abuser physically threatens or injures a family member, the violation of the protective order is a criminal offense. H.B. 1076 has been scheduled for calendar placement. S.B. 595 is in a subcommittee S.B. 529-Oscar Mauzy This bill, which was sent to the Governor, May 4, would require a peace officer or magistrate, whenever they know of a threat to the person or property of a spouse, to take action necessary to protect the spouse. The Governor must sign or veto the bill within 10 days. Equal Rights Amendment H.B. 648-Ernestine Glossbrenner and others This bill, which becomes effective as law August 22, 1979, brings the Texas Probate Code into compliance with the Texas Equal Rights Amendment. H.B. 52-Ronald C. Bird This bill would extend the exemption of jury service to all persons having legal custody of a child under the age of ten. The current law exempts only females in this circumstance. This bill has passed the House and is under consideration by the Senate. Senate Concurrent Resolution 12-Walter Mengden, Houston House Concurrent Resolution 22-Clay Smothers, Dallas HCR 22 is assigned to the House Committee on Constitutional Amendments. The Senate Jurisprudence Committee has scheduled public hearings on SCR 12 Tuesday, May 15. Midwifery H.B. 635-Hector Uribe This bill would establish a Lay Midwifery Board to: 1) establish qualifications for lay midwifery training course instructors; 2) issue a training manual; and 3) issue a final examination for a lay midwifery training course. The midwife would have to file an application, pay a fee and pass the examination to receive a letter or completion. The bill has passed the House and a third reading is pending in the Senate. Nurses H.B. 649-Ben Z. Grant S.B. 273-H. Tati Santiesbeban These bills would give the Board of Nurse Examiners more rule making powers. The house bill has been passed out of committee, but no further action has been taken. The Senate bill is in the Committee on Calendars, awaiting second reading. Houston Breakthrough 18 May 1979
