This week, Rep. Howard appeared on The Source, a show on KSTX in San Antonio. The topic of discussion was the backlog of rape kits throughout the state that have yet to undergo DNA testing.
Rep. Howard has filed HB 281, which would establish a statewide electronic tracking system for sexual assault evidence, to give survivors a secure and convenient way to keep track of where their evidence is in the process. HB 281 was passed out of the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence, and currently awaits placement on the House Calendar.
