Texas Governor Abbott Says He Wants to Sign a Transgender Bathroom Bill

The House version of the recess bill - which was significantly watered down and is no longer supported by parents, health and physical education experts or the lawmaker sponsoring it - is stalled in a committee that's not scheduled to meet again. Representatives from junior colleges, particularly Grayson College, testified for the bill and said more nurses and other professionals are needed in their communities.

Huberty calls his proposal a key first step, but says a full fix will take several years.

Gov. Jim Justice hands a signed copy of the bill establishing a medical marijuana program in West Virginia to Sen.

SB 1384 specifies that if the story is not libelous, does not constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy, does not violate federal or state law or incite students to violate the law, the story can be published.

"Her school would be stripped of any ability to protect her", Gonzales said. But during this year's legislative debate over whether to limit access to bathrooms in government buildings to the gender listed on a person's birth certificate, the governor has avoided the heat of the debate until Tuesday.

"And that child suffered", Edwards says with her voice breaking, "like so numerous patients that we've heard from in committees over the years. And to the extent we're not doing it, we should not prevent our cities from doing it", she added.

"If someone in my son's condition, where we didn't know whether he was going to have to live through Sunday night, had to wait 90 days, Christ, what is wrong?" said Dennis Deckerhoff, a Tallahassee resident whose son has severe epilepsy.

If passed, the legal and policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, Rebecca Robertson, said the bill would put many Texas public schools "between a rock and a hard place". They can still make changes either time.

"We either treat everyone in Texas equally or we don't. There is no middle ground on that", said Kathy Miller with the Texas Freedom Network. Uber and Lyft stopped operating in the city after voters took the polls and said they want to require the checks.

"We started RideAustin to bring mobility back after Uber abruptly chose to leave Austinites out-of-work and stranded". "I understand everybody won't be happy with it, but sometimes that's the definition of a good bill if nobody is 100% happy".

The house version of Texas' bathroom bill was the subject of an all-night fight Wednesday.

"These types of issues that would affect every Texan, indirectly or directly, need to be handled at the state level", Simmons said.

One Republican senator from Dorchester County had the floor for hours Wednesday trying to gain support for some changes to the gas tax bill.

Jerry Oleksiak, president of the Pennsylvania State Education Association, said his organization opposed the bill because they thought it would not make schools safer.
