PODCASTS/VIDEO: Turner Still Putting Up A Fight Over Prop B

(Houston, TX)  --  Mayor Sylvester Turner plans to hire a law firm to represent the city in its effort to push back against Proposition B.  Voters approved the measure in the November 6 election, requiring the city to pay firefighters the same as police officers of the same rank.  

Turner says Prop B violates state law and will cost the city about 100-million-dollars over the next year.  City Council on Wednesday approved 500-thousand-dollars to hire the law firm, half the amount the mayor and city legal department wanted.  Prop B takes effect in January.
