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.
