Message from the President,
A new year brings new opportunities to us, including another legislative session, scholarship opportunities, and our annual conference. We’ve begun seeing a sample of the bills that are being introduced and will closely monitor and keep you abreast of what you need to know regarding these bills. There is one piece of legislation that is currently being drafted that we are very excited about. TxSWANA has been leading the way to protect our men and women who are on the front lines collecting trash, recyclables and compostables by introducing Slow Down To Get Around (SDTGA) legislation in Texas to include these workers in an existing law that currently includes tow truck drivers, highway workers, and first responders.
