Transgender Texan posts photo with Abbott to decry bill

Greg Abbott on July 10 issued a formal proclamation for the special session that begins July 18, directing the Texas Legislature to extend expiration dates for the Texas Medical Board and other state boards that regulate psychologists, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and social workers.

Not on the agenda? That agenda has drawn denunciations from Democrats and moderate Republicans. But once it is all over, the debate bells in Texas will continue to toll.

"We've seen first hand what's happened in North Carolina".

So why are we still talking about it?

The governor said guardsmen currently working the Texas-Border mission will soon transition from operating under state orders to federal orders by the end of the month. He really didn't want to do that.

If Governor Abbott thinks he can force a bill like this, he should take a look at this joint selfie.

"They help with mitigating climate extremes, they keep the city cooler, better shaded, they add quite an aesthetic beauty to it", said Halfin. "That was nothing more than an election Ponzi scheme", Patrick said in a news conference last week.

Travis Walters is a spokesman with the Texas Air National Guard.

Business leaders warn the state has already lost $66 million in conventions and events because of the proposed bills.

"Abbott, and especially Patrick, are not honest".

The special session starts Tuesday.

During a regular session things in Austin tend to move fairly slowly. "These are all very astute and smart folks and I'm going to respond to their letter", said Patrick.

"My campaign is building the largest grassroots army ever assembled in the Lone Star State, with the goal of keeping Texas the brightest beacon of freedom in the country", Abbott said.

While outnumbered, the group says they will fight for their causes.

Earlier this year a bill that would have banned transgender Texans from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity failed in the Texas legislature.

"The mission will not change, nor will citizens notice a difference with the mission", Walters said. Jose Rodriguez (D-El Paso). There were even rumblings earlier this summer that Democrats might skip town in an attempt to derail the special session. But the Republican Party's executive committee in Straus' home county recently endorsed a non-binding resolution calling for his removal as speaker.
