Lt. Governor Patrick: Statement on the Filing of Senate Bill 13 – Restricting Government Collection of Union Dues


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued the following statement today on the pre-filing of Senate Bill 13 – Union Dues, by Senator Joan Huffman (R – Houston).

“It is clearly not the role of government to collect union dues, and certainly not at taxpayer expense. I commend Sen. Huffman for filing SB 13 – one of my top priorities, which will ensure taxpayer funds are not used to support the collection of union dues. This legislation places government in its appropriate neutral position and lets unions collect their own membership dues.”
