AUSTIN – Today, Representative Will Metcalf filed House Bill 634 to further protect the rights of legal guardians throughout the state.

"It is important that legal guardians are able to communicate with a necessitous ward, to ensure that no one is overlooked," said Representative Metcalf

House Bill 634 will ensure legal guardians of a ward in the criminal justice system their visitation rights.

“This bill is a common sense approach to allowing legal guardians the necessary resources to access a ward. This legislation will also allow the guardian the ability to request indigent defense and to provide the necessary documents," Representative Metcalf said.
