Paid sick leave at the Lege today
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano
The House State Affairs Committee is scheduled to take up a series of bills that threaten paid sick leave ordinances. Senate bills 2485, 2486, 2487 and 2488 are expected to be taken up in the morning. The bills’ opponents – including Council Member Greg Casar – have planned a rally on the west steps of the Texas Capitol (weather permitting) in support of paid sick time legislation recently passed in both Austin and Dallas. More information about the rally can be found here.
