In 2019, the State Purchasing Preferences Initiative is focusing on California and Texas. Success in either of these states would create a first-of-its-kind victory for the employee ownership community and would provide a playbook for future efforts at the state and local levels.
|State||Led By||Session Dates||Sponsor||Bill Number|
|California||Pavement Recycling Systems||1/7/19 - 9/13/19||Senator Scott Wilk||SB-553|
|Texas||EEA Consulting Engineers||1/8/19 - 5/27/19||Representative Hugh Shine||HB1198|
|Sen Beverly Powell||SB1650|
To help support these initiatives, we are seeking sponsorship from members of the employee ownership community. 100% of sponsorship dollars will go to pay consultants and advisors who will help move initiatives forward. All sponsors will receive recognition on this page, will be invited on a bi-annual update call, and receive updates on our activities.
