Dear Mr. Chairman:
The Texas Construction Association PAC is pleased to send the enclosed check your campaign and to endorse you for your re-election to the Texas House of Representatives.
The Texas Construction Association (TAC) is an association of subcontractors and suppliers involved in the construction industry. Our 15 Member Associations and direct member companies comprise over 2,500 employers and approximately 175,000 employees. A list of TCA Member Association is found on the document accompanying this letter.
TCA’s legislative priorities for the upcoming legislative session include advocating for the passage of legislation to allow subcontractors in Texas to exercise their lien rights under less onerous and complicated lien laws than those that exist today, to be paid in full in a timely manner for work performed on a project, and to be paid in full for work performed when a lender forecloses on a construction project. In addition, TCA will work for the passage of legislation to establish standards for consolidated insurance programs and to prevent workplace fraud regarding the misclassification of employees as independent contractors. Enclosed is a one-page document which contains additional information on the TCA’s legislative issues for 2013.
Michael L. White
Vice President- Governmental Affairs
