HB 2899 is not the senate's version of the bathroom bill.

The Texas Senate passed a bill on Wednesday to allow home-schooled students to participate in University Interscholastic League sports.

The biological sex on Libby's birth certificate says "boy' but that does not match the 7-year-old's gender identify".

Welch said that he would not have to make any changes to his physical appearance before going into a women's bathroom, based on local ordinances.

In an interview, John Colyandro, the group's executive director, said the measure "does not make material changes to the system", and "creates a budget issue into the future". "And to the extent we're not doing it, we should not prevent our cities from doing it", she added. "She is fully supported in her school has never had an issue, all of her educators and classmates support her, and should an issue arise in the future her school would be stripped of any ability to protect her", said Gonzales.

If a transgender student feels discriminated against because of bathroom access at a public school, that could be a lawsuit.

"It's appalling to suggest they have found a so called middle ground on discrimination, we either treat everyone in Texas equally or we don't".

Schelling said that for the transgender community, opposing bathroom bills is a "life-and-death stance".

"We are putting privacy, privacy protection above everything", Rep. Simmons said. To do this, colleges would have to be in good financial standing and suit needs in the workforce.

Members of the Texas House of Representatives voted Wednesday to approve House Bill 100 by Representative Chris Paddie (R-Marshall) establishing statewide regulation of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft. Committee members, as they often do after a first public hearing, left the bill pending. That's why he believes consistency, one law for all of Texas, is another reason the bill is necessary.

"About the unintended consequences might be about opening up restrooms to whoever felt like they felt for a particular time", Simmons explained. But opponents were scrambling again ahead of a House State Affairs committee meeting Wednesday that has revived the effort.
