(This amendment provides $94,963 from the general fund each year to establish the Hope Card Program in concert with the passage of House Bill 761. The Hope Card Program allows anyone with a valid protective order to obtain a card summarizing the protective order's critical information. The card provides victims with a durable and convenient means of carrying pertinent information regarding an existing order.)
