In 2021, Texas passed SB 41, which repealed youth fees for court-ordered treatment, out-of-home placements, graffiti eradication, diversion, DNA testing, teen court, teen dating violence court, drug education, and alcohol awareness. These fees accounted for an estimated $1 million collected annually from youth and families. In 2023, Texas passed SB 1612 / HB 3403, which eliminates all remaining fees. This makes Texas the first southern state to abolish all juvenile court fees without condition. To learn more or join the campaign, contact us at [email protected].
