Top Republican in Texas legislature says ‘bathroom bill’ is dead

By Reid Wilson - 01/09/19 12:38 PM EST 

The most powerful Republican in the Texas state legislature said Wednesday that his so-called "bathroom bill" would not be a legislative priority this year, effectively killing a measure that sparked heated and bitter arguments two years ago.

Speaking at a news conference at the governor’s mansion in Austin, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) claimed victory in the fight to require transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender at birth.

“When you win the battle, you don’t have to fight the battle again,” Patrick said. “I think it’s been settled, and I think we’ve won.”

The debate over transgender people’s access to bathrooms kicked off when the Obama administration issued guidelines for public school districts that allowed transgender students to use facilities that correspond to their gender identity.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
