House Report

Edgar's picture

By State Representative Todd Russ

A Texas federal judge last week issued an injunction barring the Obama administration from enforcing its “guidance” on schools’ transgender restroom policies. The new ruling prevents the federal government from penalizing schools that refuse to comply. Issued in May through the U.S. Department of Education, the guidance specified that a student should be able to access restrooms, showers and locker rooms that matched the gender with which they identify instead of the gender to which they were born.
