Default Ground wire

I live in New Braunfels, TX. In a new house, is a bedroom celing light required to have the copper ground wire connected from the house wiring to the fixture?

it's always possible with non-members, Mike
Rookie should hire a qualified electrician to complete any electrical installations

the mfr. instructions would have this required installation detail, but who reads instructions

cpsc will have info on any recalled lighting fixtures or other products & appliances being installed
there are many added daily
