Business coalition asks Abbott to add preemption of local employment regulations to an upcoming special session
Disappointed in the
failure of such legislation in the regular session of the Texas
Legislature, a coalition of business groups is asking Gov. Greg
Abbott to add what they call “consistency” in employment regulations to the
agenda when lawmakers return to Austin later in the year.
"We respectfully ask
that you add this critical issue — providing the regulatory consistency that
will help our economy flourish — to the call of the upcoming special
legislative session,” said the coalition known as ASSET Texas.
