Texas "Bathroom Bill" referred to committee


Texas SB6, the Texas "bathroom bill," has been referred to the Senate State Affairs Committee. No date for a hearing has yet been set.

The Committee contact information, if you care to badger them, is:

Senate Committee on State Affairs (C570)
Clerk: Addison Reagan
Phone: (512) 463-0380
Room: SHB 380

Committee members are:

Vice Chair: Sen. Bryan Hughes
 
Links go to the senators' respective individual pages, which contains their individual contact info and an email form. Of course, if you contact them, it's probably helpful if you actually live in Texas....
 
Hopefully someone will pick up on The Great Texas Pee-In, to be held on the date of the committee hearing.

Texas "Bathroom Bill" - Go Pee in the "Wrong" Bathroom!

So... They are planning to introduce one of those "bathroom bills" in the Texas Legislature. The bill number is SB 6. You can read it here.

Here is what I think should happen:

On the day the committee is holding a hearing on the bill, everyone should show up at the state capitol, and line up to pee in the "wrong" bathroom. Thousands and thousands of people. All going into the "wrong" bathroom to take a leak.

If I were in Austin, I would organize it. But I'm not, so I need help to spread it around and get it going. Tell all your friends. Especially tell all your friends in Austin. Let's make this happen.

I will post the committee hearing date(s) when I have them.
