Will “Bathroom Bill” Fight Spill Over in to Special Session?

By Don Morgan

A vote on the “Bathroom Bill”? Probably not going to happen this legislative session.

The bill to keep transgender Texans from using the public bathrooms of the gender they identify with got clogged up in committee and missed a key deadline to make it to the Texas House floor.

Don’t think the issue is going down the drain anytime soon.

Dave Welch at the Texas Pastor Council says they will push the Governor for a special legislative session so the bill can be voted on.

“We do believe that it’s time for the Governor to exert the leadership he promised on this issue.”

Meanwhile at Equality Texas they’re happy the bill isn’t going to the house floor but they are cautiously optimistic.

CEO Chuck Smith talked to us about it and says there is still the possibility the bill could be offered as an amendment.
