On May 22, 2015, Governor Abbott signed Senate Bill 901, which amends Texas Labor Code Section 408.103 to reflect that an employee receives 75% (versus 70%) of the difference between his post-injury earnings and his average weekly wage if the employee is making less than $10 per hour.  (Previously, an injured employee was entitled to 75% of the difference between his post-injury earnings and his AWW if making less than $8.50 per hour.)  This change is effective for dates of injury on or after September 1, 2015.
