A key deadline passed on Monday without the House “bathroom bill” getting out of committee, meaning the bill won’t make it to the House floor this session.
As North Carolina lawmakers voted Thursday to revise that state’s “bathroom bill,” Texas Republicans said they are not backing away from their proposal.
Though the bill has made it to the House, chamber leaders have hinted that the controversial legislation may never reach the chamber’s floor for a vote.
After several hours of debate, the Texas Senate on Tuesday tentatively signed off on the so-called “bathroom bill” on a 21-10 vote.
Texas Republicans on Thursday unveiled Senate Bill 6, which would require transgender people to use bathrooms in public schools, government buildings and public universities based on “biological sex.”
