These new laws can cause legal concerns and sprout confusing legal questions for both you and your families. Here are a few of the laws that began to take effect in 2018.

–Senate Bill 1381 – This bill allows Texas retailers to reject any sale where shoppers can’t, or won’t, produce a photo ID. According to Anna Tinsley of the Star-Telegram, Texas lawmakers passed this bill as an effort to combat data breaches that affect millions of shoppers yearly.

–Senate Bill 1767- This bill allows individuals who are taxed more due to an appraisal of their property value the chance to protest their assessment and, according to the Bill itself “seeks to provide protections for property owners…by preventing additional increases in assessments without consent and guaranteeing an opportunity to respond to the evidence used to determine the value of their property”( SB 1707, 85th Texas Legis. R.S (2017)).

–Senate Bill 1062- This bill attempts to speed up the transfer of ownership of a vehicle by allowing electronic copies of the forms needed to complete the transfer, forms that use to have to be mailed in.
