Session Update

Penalties bills move out of BOTH committees!

i Apr 29th Comments Off by
HB1925 and SB 676 Both the House and Senate version of this bill that would create meaningful penalties for construction companies that misclassify their workers were passed out of their respective committees this week! On Monday, the Economic and Small Business Development Committee voted for HB 1925 7-0 with 2 members absent. The Senate bill (by Sen. Carona, R-Dallas) received a 7-0 favorable vote in the Senate Economic Development Committee on Thursday. We’ll see if this bill can move through both houses quickly, despite opposition from home builder groups (read article here).
