Lawmakers Wasted Time on Distractions Instead of Focusing on Priorities

Three Strikes and Out on School Reform?
May 30, 2005
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Texas Freedom Network President Kathy Miller issued the following statement on the end of the 79th Legislature today.

“Texans clearly set key priorities for this Legislature, especially dealing with crises in school funding and children’s health care. But lawmakers wasted time on distractions like sexy cheerleaders, scapegoating gay Texans and pushing vouchers. Now three times in three years they have failed to improve the way we pay for our public schools. Next year we’ll find out if politics has a three-strikes rule.”

"Not the right kind of Christian." In their efforts to discriminate against LGBT people, legislation authored by @RepJamesFrank and signed by Gov. @GregAbbott_TX in 2017 (#HB3859) opened the door to exactly this kind of discrimination. bit.ly/2SSmRAZ #txlege
