HB 2899 Hearing Is Today
Once again I'm hanging out with a few of my friends from across Texas waiting to testify against HB 2899. It's a bill that will not only bar Texas cities from passing ne non discrimination laws, it would wipe out current passed non discrimination laws in Austin, Dallas, El Paso and San Antonio in addition to oppressing trans Texans.
Registration opened up at 10 AM, and it is supposed to be taking place at the John H Reagan Building.
It has been postponed a few times already, and we are prepared to be here for a while.
