Stephens bill to protect employees from workplace violence

During Thursday's House Labor and Industry meeting the topic was Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) bill, House Bill 2071, which implements a voluntary workplace violence policy to attempt to protect employees.

There were four amendments on the bill and all but one failed before the bill was passed out of committee with two Democrats voting with Republicans in an otherwise party-line vote.
