AUSTIN—The Alliance for Securing and Strengthening the Economy in Texas today released the following statement regarding Senate passage of Senate Bills 2486 and 2488, which make certain employment regulations consistent across Texas:
“With the passage of SB 2486 and 2488, the Texas Senate has stood up for Texas jobs and against the growing threat of inconsistent and burdensome employment regulations imposed by cities,” ASSET Spokeswoman Annie Spilman said. “When paired with SB 2485 and 2487, these bills are the most important votes the Legislature will take this session to protect Texas jobs and our economy. We look forward to the House passing these four bills to give job creators consistency and certainty in employment regulations in Texas.”
