House Bill 45 by Flynn is Voted out of Committee
AUSTIN -- The House Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence Committee voted Representative Dan Flynn's (R-Van) American Law in American Courts bill out of committee Tuesday. Representative Flynn introduced bills in the last three legislative sessions to address the foreign law issue. Foreign law is often applied in Texas cases concerning foreign divorce orders, child support and property settlements. In addition, sometimes spouses enter into agreements to have foreign law applied to their disputes.
