Governor Greg Abbott failed to get a bill to exclude transgender students from sports passed during the regular session and and failed to do so again during the first 'special session'. So having nothing better to do as the pandemic rages he tried again by making it a top priority during the second special session.
They fought well for the trans community that they felt worth fighting for which is better than nothing I suppose.
The future of SB 2 is unknown. A similar bill was heard in the same House committee chaired by Dutton during the regular session that ended by Dutton saying that a vote wouldn't be taken.
Chair Dutton leaves #SB2 pending and the meeting is adjourned.— Equality Texas (@EqualityTexas) August 25, 2021
