Harris County is Eliminating the FTA Program on Outstanding Warrants
Sep 27, 2020
Harris County has terminated the agreement with the department by which it has participated in the FTA program and requested that the department lift all holds issued by courts in Harris County in connection with the agreement. Harris County seeks the lifting of all renewal holds it has placed regardless of whether a clearance notice is authorized under section 706.005 and regardless of whether the person who failed to appear for a complaint or citation for an offense has paid a reimbursement fee pursuant to section 706.006. In addition to the statutory provision referenced above, Harris County has contractually agreed to collect the applicable reimbursement fee prior to submitting a clearance notice.
