SAN ANTONIO (November 22, 2019) —Today, a local court blocked San Antonio’s Paid Sick Leave ordinance from going into effect. In response to this, Councilman Peláez issued the following statement:



“For more than a year, I have said that adopting a mandatory PSL ordinance would result in litigation and cautioned that this ordinance, albeit well intentioned, was prone to be blocked by the courts.



If appealed, I have no reason to believe that the appellate court will reverse today’s ruling. I do not feel we should commit more resources towards protracted litigation.”
