A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 
AN ACT
  relating to the suspension of the license of a dishonorably
  discharged law enforcement officer.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Section 1701.4521(a), Occupations Code, is
  amended to read as follows:
         (a)  The commission shall suspend the license of an officer
  licensed under this chapter on notification that the officer has
  been dishonorably discharged [if the officer has previously been
  dishonorably discharged from another law enforcement agency].
         SECTION 2.  (a) In this section, "dishonorably discharged"
  has the meaning assigned by Section 1701.452, Occupations Code.
         (b)  Section 1701.4521(a), Occupations Code, as amended by
  this Act, applies only to the suspension of a license issued under
  Chapter 1701, Occupations Code, for a law enforcement officer who
  is dishonorably discharged on or after the effective date of this
  Act. The suspension of a license for a law enforcement officer who
  is dishonorably discharged before the effective date of this Act is
  governed by the law as it existed immediately before the effective
  date of this Act, and that law is continued in effect for that
  purpose.
         SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2021.
