“I applaud President Trump’s decision to rescind President Obama’s unprecedented and overreaching public school bathroom policy, which would have turned Title IX on its head and weakened civil rights laws for the very individuals it was designed to protect. Public school bathrooms and locker rooms should be safe spaces – not social experiments that allow our children’s privacy to be violated by members of the opposite sex. Under the Tenth Amendment, Texas should be left to determine our own policies in the best interest of Texans, and I am encouraged by the actions of my colleagues in the Senate to pass a Texas Privacy Act where the privacy, safety, and dignity of all individuals is respected.”
