BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Bill would require Texas construction contractors to carry comp


Texas lawmakers in both chambers are set to consider legislation that would require contractors in construction to carry workers compensation coverage when in contract with a government entity.

S.B. 283, pre-filed Wednesday, is identical to H.B. 778, which was pre-filed on Nov. 21. Both bills said all contractors and subcontractors on public projects may provide an “owner-controlled” insurance policy as an alternative to an outside insurance policy.

Texas is the only state that does not require employers to purchase comp insurance.
