Bills in the Senate!

i Apr 8th Comments Off by
SB 340 by Sen. Rodriguez,  enhancing penalties against Wage Theft, was voted out of the Senate!! It is now awaiting a hearing in the House Economic & Small Business Development Committee. Rep Mary Gonzalez, sponsor of the House companion (HB3625) has already requested a hearing.

SB 741 by Sen. Rodriguez extends the filing deadline with the Texas Workforce Commission. We are waiting on a vote in the Senate, but we are unsure that we will have enough votes due to opposition from the TAB and NFIB. Hopefully we will hear soon!
