Texas Bathroom Bill Dies as Legislatures Adjourn Sine Die

Texas Bathroom Bill Dies

Dan Patrick’s Bathroom Bill dies a desperately needed victory, but the hate from the right has left many concerned with our future.

Late last night the Texas Senate followed the House in gaveling out for the final time ending the special session, leaving the latest versions of the bathroom to die.

It was a tremendous victory for Texans encompassing every stratum and demographic of the Lonestar state. Those who traveled to Austin for the three torturous overnight hearings deserve to know how much the transgender community appreciates them. The Texas Legislature heard from thousands including Police, Trans kids and parents, CEO’s, Teachers, performers, religious leaders, mayors, and citizens all denouncing the radical right’s proposed legislation.

Equality Texas CEO Chuck Smith posted on Facebook “Tonight’s victory against anti-#transgender discrimination is the product of 4 consecutive weeks of round-the-clock grassroots advocacy. #YallMeansAllEquality Texas Texas Freedom Network ACLU of Texas Transgender Education Network of Texas Human Rights Campaign”

No rest for the righteous.

Dan Patrick said he will again push the bathroom bill in 2019 when the legislature next convenes. Texans need a comprehensive plan in action to defeat this hateful politician who has already raised 13 million for that bid.
