The conference committees’ funding decisions for Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) for the FY 2020-21 biennium have been approved by the Texas House of Representatives and Texas Senate.

During the last few months, we have worked closely with the State leadership and their staff considering our requests for additional items of policy and operational significance. We are especially grateful for the HB1 Conference Committee’s decisions regarding employee salaries. The committee approved funding to restructure the correctional career ladder and provide salary increases for correctional officers, ranking correctional officers, correctional laundry and food service managers, and parole officers.
