The long campaign for the legislation that became H.B. 2127 began in 2018, when Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio passed ordinances requiring employers to offer paid sick leave.

Those laws were later shot down by state and federal courts as a violation of state bans on raising the minimum wage above the federal standard.

Stopping rogue cities from overreaching into social engineering issues, that go way beyond fixing potholes and issuing permits.
