Legislative & Regulatory

TNLA HEADING BACK TO WASHINGTON D.C. Next week TNLA members will join over 100 companies from across the country for a H-2B Fly-in to Congress. As of now, there has been no cap relief provided for FY 2020 and the deadline for Congress to include cap relief in a funding measure is closing quickly. Given the deadline for Congress to fund the government is approaching rapidly, TNLA members will be communicating the needs of the Green Industry at a crucial time. Please be on the lookout for next week's effort at the TNLA Legislative Action Center asking members to urge your Texas Congressional official to support H-2B cap relief for our industry. TNLA's Legislative Action Center makes it as easy as a "click of a button" to send a pre-written email to your Congressman.
