Here, via Towleroad is an overview, from a joint news release issued Tuesday by Equality Texas, the ACLU of Texas and the Texas Freedom Network:
The 20 bills (click here) that would subject LGBT Texans to discrimination can be grouped into four broad categories:
- Six bills, including two proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution, would allow businesses, government workers and other individuals to use religion to justify discrimination.
- Five bills would sweep away nondiscrimination protections passed by municipal and other local governments.
- Six bills openly seek to subvert any court ruling that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage violates the U.S. Constitution.
- Three bills would turn transgender people into criminals if they use a restroom that is appropriate to their gender identity. They would also turn employers and building managers essentially into bathroom police who must — under threat of fines and criminal prosecution — verify the gender of individuals using their restrooms.
