Jessica's Law: What's in HB 8?

Finally! The Texas House Research Organization's bill analysis of HB 8 ("Jessica's Law") was finally posted this morning, as near as I can tell just before if not slightly after the House was scheduled to convene (they're late). Here's their 13 page analysis of the bill.

UPDATE: The House is now standing at ease until 1:15 p.m.. Speaker Tom Craddick announced that all bills would be heard promptly at that time. He also said anyone with amendments should bring them forward and give them to the parliamentarian to speed the process along. I hope that means there are significant amendments being proposed to Jessica's Law. Go here for this afternoon's livestream.
