Maybe after many moons they get the merits of the case up to the same CoA and it's a Democratic majority panel and they get a favorable ruling??? Long after the preemption bill is signed I'm sure....

Everyone knew the was coming for paid sick days policies. But I didn't expect such a judicial roadblock. There's still legal wrangling to be done, I'm sure, but the Lege is very likely to preempt this, and the judiciary has made it easy for them.

This must be a bitter pill for paid sick leave advocates. Two of the 3 judges who just stymied Austin's policy are lame duck justices:

Statement from , one of the main groups who organized for Austin's mandatory paid sick leave policy. The Texas 3rd Court of Appeals has blocked the measure on state constitutional grounds. Again, this was the first such policy to pass in the South.

Welp, court of appeals officially bought the argument that mandatory paid sick leave is a minimum wage increase. Paid sick policies to be enjoined going forward, and most likely doomed.

Just fund m4a on the backs of the top 20? I guess politically that's a tough sell but top 20 has all the money so

THREAD: Today, House Republicans blocked our effort to vote on ending U.S. support for Saudi atrocities in Yemen. Hidden in a rule regarding gray wolves in America, they truly advanced a wolf in wolf’s clothing.
