Cover picture for the articleThe Legislature began the special session with hearings in both House and Senate committees on bail reform legislation on Saturday, July 10. The House Select Committee on Constitutional Rights and Remedies heard hours of testimony on House Bill 2 by Rep. Reggie Smith (R-Sherman) and House Joint Resolution 1 by Rep. Kyle Kacal (R-College Station). Counties were well represented during the hearing as many county officials and associations testified on potential cost to counties should the measures be implemented. At the end of the hearing, both pieces of legislation were voted out of committee.
