AUSTIN, TX — Governor Abbott signed a bill on Thursday evening that ensures occupational licenses can no longer be taken away due to student loan default.
Thank you @GregAbbott_TX! Enjoyed working with your office on HB 218/SB 37 "The Removing Barriers to Work Act." The prior policy of taking away an occupational license for student loan default was both counter-productive & counter-intuitive. This is great news for Texas! #txlege https://t.co/fJ58rxLF30— Matt Krause (@RepMattKrause) June 7, 2019
