CHAPTER 810. CIVIL COMMITMENT

SUBCHAPTER B. CIVIL COMMITMENT

37 TAC §810.156

The Texas Civil Commitment Office (TCCO) adopts an amendment to §810.156, concerning Sexually Violent Predators Required to Submit to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Tracking. The section is adopted without changes to the proposed text in the November 5, 2021, issue of the Texas Register (46 TexReg 7568). The rule will not be republished.

The amended section is adopted to revise the description of the two most restrictive tiers of treatment in which clients are required to submit to GPS tracking under Section 841.082(a)(4)(A)(ii) of the Health and Safety Code. Tier two has been divided into two parts - Tier 2 and Tier 2-I. Tier 2-I is the most restrictive part being comprised of clients in their first six months of assignment to Tier 2 and clients in the tier that have an incident report sustained at a Behavioral Management Review (BMR).

During the 30-day comment period following publication in the Texas Register, no comments were received regarding the amendment.

The amended section is adopted under Health and Safety Code §841.141 which authorizes the adoption of rules to administer Chapter 841.

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the adoption and found it to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.

Filed with the Office of the Secretary of State on May 4, 2022.
