Texas Public Records: Latest Questions and Answers
Q: Verify your Texas criminal record search
by OpenPublicRecords
A:There are many of us which are not absolutely sure of what records show up in our background. Are citations showing, details of severe infractions such as DUI or reckless driving. Which court records show up? The more a person thinks about it, the less they are sure of what may appear.

It isn’t hard to search your own records, many of us do to check before applying for employment. Some need to clear their records or eliminate erroneous entries. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) offers a public criminal database for public use. It is low cost at only $3 per credit, which is the cost for one name search. The fee can add up if you need to search for additional names, regardless whether of the same person or not. What the DPS also offers is a list of employers which have ordered their criminal history checks. The list includes small as well as larger firms. Looking at the companies which are listed, one can't help but notice that some of the names are data providers, retail and wholesale. Some of the largest names in data collection and providers are listed having purchased reports from the DPS. These companies are the source of information for multitude of other companies.

Once the record is out, it's out there and DPS no longer has control. They also do not have control over the interpretation of such records. However, reputable firms update their data often to reflect expungements or corrections that were recently made. www.open-public-records.com/texas_public_records.htm lists this service under Texas Criminal Records: Felony and misdemeanor cases which goes to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) public criminal database.

Q: percentage of persons with criminal record in southern Hunt County TX 75474
by June
A:The amount of crime in a certain area can be seen with crime maps and past statistics that are easy to find. The number of persons with a criminal record may not be an accurate count how a neighborhood is crime ridden as people move.

Q: What is the statute of limitations on bounced checks in Texas?
by Barbara McCurry
A:The Texas statutes are freely available online for anyone to look up. There's a query page that allows you to search by key terms. It may be frustrating, but once the right terms are used, the work is mostly done. Helps tremendously if familiar with the right terminology such as 'instrument' or if it is considered forgery or fraud or whatever the right term which needs to be used.

Q: Who is the national dealers association?
by eli martin
A:Texas claims to be pro business, but have been resisting sales of Tesla’s cars in their state. Texas! Pro business?? Only if their special interest groups approve, and their supported legislatures.
by ed reeves
A:This is a typical bully tactic from a special interest group. Who are they to claim themselves as a consumer protection advocate? Since when is National Automobile Dealers Association concerned with consumer protections? Is that they usually do, or are they for the interest of dealers which pay dues. Without these dues, they would probably not exist, so they will go after anyone, regardless of right or wrong, as long as they maintain their influence with legislatures.

by david albon
A:The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) is claiming that they’re protecting the consumer by having dealerships sell Tesla autos. Since when did dealers protect the consumer? Would like to hear from anyone which has experienced a time where a dealer came to protect their customers and from what? Is this even a valid claim?
by CAdreamer
A:If you're wondering who special interest groups are and what they do, this is a great story to model after. Power over the legislation from a special interest group versus an entrepreneur. Many special interest groups are not for open and free markets, only to give an advantage to the ones they represent.
by alice nardon
A:It’s actually the “National Automobile Dealers Association”. They represent the interests of automobile dealers, a special interest group. They are lobbies for the dealers that have been trying to stifle Elon Musk’s efforts to sell his Tesla automobiles in states where their dealers are complaining. According to published reports, dealers have spent over $86 billion in nine years on state elections and almost $54 billion in federal elections. Texas, Arizona and New Jersey are still keeping Tesla automobiles from being sold in their state.
