PUF fund alternative is not an effective fix | Legislators making a Leviathan (TWDB) that will turn on us – Pratt on Texas 4/4/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.
