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.
