The Texas Legislature passed a new law that ends the Texas DPS Surcharge Program on September 1, 2019. The Surcharge Program had caused many Texans to endure financial hardship when they had been convicted of a DWI or other driving offenses. Failure to pay meant the loss or suspension of a Texas Driver’s License. While there are still similar fines that accompany a DWI final conviction, this latest round of legislation is a move in the right direction.
