Group Slams Patrick Over “Bathroom Bill” Maneuvering

By Don Morgan

Equality Texas is accusing the Lt. Governor of sabotaging the state budget in order to get what he wants.

The groups Chuck Smith talked to us about the possibility that the Texas Senate will vote down the current attempt to have a law that would force transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender on their birth certificate.

Smith says the effort to get a bathroom bill voted through is the work of Lt. Governor Dan Patrick.

“This whole circus is being caused by the Lt. Governor who apparently would try and hold everything up if he doesn’t get what he wants.”

Smith says the prior versions of the bathroom bill were discriminatory but the most recent update discriminates against children.
