PROTECTIVE SERVICES REFORM PLAN SENT TO GOVERNOR

AUSTIN -- The conference committee report on Senate Bill 6, the omnibus protective services reform bill, was approved today by the Texas House and Texas Senate and sent to the governor's desk. Authored by Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Lewisville, Senate Bill 6 responds to the ongoing problems within the state's protective service agencies.

"This legislation will ensure that the agencies responsible for making life-and-death decisions are properly equipped and trained to make the right decisions," Senator Nelson said. "This has been an issue so close to our hearts because it involves our children and our most vulnerable citizens. We need our protective service agencies to do what their name suggests -- protect."

The conference committee report for SB 6:

SENATOR JANE NELSON, R-LEWISVILLE, represents District 12, which includes parts of Tarrant and Denton counties.
