Workers' Compensation: Legislative Reform in Texas

Tony D. Williams


In December 1989, Texas enacted a new workers' compensation law. Passage of the reform legislation did not occur without a bitter fight and, in fact, took place only when a strong and united coalition of groups threw its support behind the bill. The Texas cotton ginning industry participated in this coalition. This paper demonstrates the need for such coalitions to effect change in government and the benefits derived from them by our industry.
