Workplace Heat Exposure Requirements (Oppose) – Passed 

CS/CS/HB 433 (Esposito) and CS/SB 1492 (Trumbull) preempt the regulation of heat exposure requirements to the state. The bills prohibit local governments from providing preference for contractors on the basis of employment benefits offered by the contractor. The bills provide that starting September 30, 2026, a political subdivision cannot require a minimum wage for certain employees under the terms of a contract. CS/CS/HB 433 passed the House (74-36) and the Senate (24-15) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (Wagoner)
