Texas lawmakers have approved a measure that would pay for more expert testimony to help keep violent sex offenders off the streets. The new proposal was approved on Monday from the House Appropriations Subcommittee approving $128,000 dollars to hire a second expert in complex cases.

Democrat State Representative Sylvester Turner turned down a draft of other proposals to increase funds for staffing at criminal justice agencies in order to allow this proposition to go through the approval process.
