PRESS RELEASE -- Senator Lois Kolkhorst Comments on Federal Decision to Rescind Obama Mandate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Matthew Russell February 22, 2017 512-463-0118

“I am grateful for the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education’s decision to rescind the mandates issued by the Obama Administration that rewrote a great deal of Title IX and redefined gender which would have allowed men in women’s restrooms, showers, locker rooms and dressing rooms in our public schools, colleges and universities. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged that ‘there must be due regard for the primary role of the states and local school districts in establishing educational policy.’ Therefore, we will continue to work diligently in crafting the Texas Privacy Act to ensure that our state provides a nondiscriminatory solution for all Texas students and the general public in these most intimate settings. The people of Texas must define for ourselves what boundaries are expected in our public facilities.”
