Late Sunday night Speaker Straus and his allies rammed a poorly worded amendment through the Texas House to quell conservatives’ concerns about unwanted intrusions into women’s showers, restrooms, and locker rooms. Texans won’t be fooled by this phony attempt to pretend to deal with the issue. Call Speaker Straus, tell him Texas needs a real privacy bill!

My friend Lt. Governor Dan Patrick has been working to protect the privacy and safety of Texas women and children in showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms. Last week, Governor Greg Abbott asked the legislature to pass a privacy bill. But Speaker Joe Straus responded that this is not a priority to Texans.

An overwhelming majority of Texans (more than two-thirds of those polled, and more than half of Democrats) think it should be illegal for a man to enter a women’s restroom. Texans can agree that women and children should be free from unwanted intrusions into their privacy while using showers, restrooms, locker rooms, and changing rooms.

Governor Abbott, Lt. Governor Patrick, a majority of representatives in the Texas House, and a clear majority of Texans want the Texas Legislature to move a privacy bill. Only Speaker Straus is standing in the way. Will you take a moment to let Speaker Straus know that Texas needs a real privacy bill?
