Texas SB 723 Anti Transgender Marriage Bill on Back Burner for now

The bad news. Tommy Williams Senate bill can only be described as a unmitigated attack on law abiding transgender citizens of Texas. This legislation may still be passed that would strip Texas families of there state recognized marriage.

The good news: Daniel Williams at Legislative Queery reports 2/3's of the Senate does not support this bill so it has been moved to the back burner where it could very well die.

But Daniel warns us not to let our guards down, very sage advice from the veteran advocate without LGBT borders. So lets keep up the pressure. Find your legislator Here and tell them vote NO to SB 723!

Tell Democratic Senator Carlos I. Uresti and Texas Republican Senators to OPPOSE SB 723

Texas SB 723 is the bill that would remove a court ordered "sex change" from the list of identifying documents that can be used to obtain a marriage license.

But the fallout of this bill should it get passed by the Senate is tragic. There would then be legislative and Judicial precedent in further battles for our opponents to site as they endeavour to render us non citizens in Texas.

All of the of Democratic Texas State Senators have come out in opposition to the bill except one, which would remove the right of Texas Transgender people to Marry.This bill if passed by the Senate surly will be passed by the House to Governor Rick Perry who has stated he would sign it into law.
