Bill Caption

Relating to the regulation by a municipality or county of certain employment benefits and policies.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

SB 14 would prohibit counties and municipalities from adopting or enforcing an ordinance, order, rule, regulation, or policy requiring any terms of employment that exceed or conflict with federal or state law relating to any form of employment leave, hiring practices, employment benefits, scheduling practices, or other terms of employment.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports SB 14 because it empowers the free market by preventing counties and municipalities from placing employers under harsher regulations or standards than the state or federal law otherwise allows.
