HB 906 to Alter Termination Appeals Login/Join

The House is about to pass HB 906 which includes:

"SECTION 5. Sections 263.405(b-1), (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), and (i), Family Code, are repealed."

The Statement of Points and frivolous appeal provisions are replaced with:

"(c) The supreme court shall adopt rules accelerating the disposition by the appellate court and the supreme court of an appeal of a final order granting termination of the parent-child relationship rendered under this subchapter."

Anyone opposed to this should be ready when it gets to the Senate.

In other words, "we're sick of the courts ignoring every statute we pass about accelerated appeals, so do it yourself!"

Even funnier, those rules already exist: See 28.1 and 40.1.
