Austin City To Discuss ‘Legal Issues’ with the Death Star Bill

In a report from Austin America-Statesmen, Austin City council is set to talk about the Death Star’s ‘legal issues’ in a closed door meeting scheduled today.

One of the issues that had been linked with the death star bill were about local ordinances. For example, once the Death Star bill will take effect on September, mandated water breaks for workers will no longer be enforced. Aside from that, lawmakers were also worried that the eviction protection for renters will also be abolished.
