local Houston media is starting to comment on the unjust SB 723 bill.
We're still concerned about this bill if it isn't killed enshrining the odious Littleton case into Texas law and setting negative legislative intent precedent against trans marriage especially in light of the pending Delgado v Araguz case.
The Texas legislature is also meeting until May 30.
We're glad this is starting to get the attention of people not residing in the Lone Star State, but that means it's getting the attention of our haters and they will start pushing back as well.
Remember, the Republicans have an 19-12 edge in the Texas Senate. They need ONE Democratic legislator to break ranks and allow this bill to come up for a vote.
So your Texas transpeeps still need those calls and e-mails to the Texas Democratic senators (be nice) and ask them to keep the united front to kill SB 723.
Here are those addresses and phone numbers. Sen Carlos Uresti is the one highlighted for now because he was rumored to be the one wavering on SB 723. Let them know the eyes of trans Texans and the nation are upon them to do the right thing and thank them for doing so.
