Title: Judicial officers and public safety officials.
Description: Judicial officers and public safety officials. Provides that a person commits battery on a public safety official if the offense is committed against a current or former public safety official: (1) while the official is engaged in the official's official duty; or (2) in retaliation for the official having engaged in the official's official duty. (Under current law, a person commits the offense only if the official is acting in the person's official duty.) Exempts a person who retires from judicial office after at least 20 years of service or because of a disability from the payment of the fee for a license to carry a handgun.
