Tex. Gov't Code Section 494.007
Employees’ Salaries, Room and Board, Medical Care


Salaries of employees of the institutional division and the provision of board, lodging, uniforms, and other provisions to employees are as provided by the General Appropriations Act.


The department, in preparing its biennial budget request, shall review the rent charged department employees for state-owned housing and the department’s policy of providing rent-free state-owned housing to certain employees. The department, as part of the budget request, shall adjust the rent charged employees as necessary to more closely reflect the market value of the housing and shall adjust the list of employees receiving rent-free housing if necessary to comply with the General Appropriations Act, state law, or policies on rent-free housing adopted by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. If the department determines that no adjustment in rent charged to employees is necessary for a biennium, the department shall state that fact in the department’s budget request.


Employees of the institutional division who are injured in the line of duty are entitled to receive free medical care and hospitalization from division doctors and the division hospital.
