Texas bill could deny transgender wrestler title defense

"So what's happening is as values escalate, tax bills are escalating and people find themselves further behind and they just can't make ends meet", said State Sen. In a Washington Postessay titled,"Texas school officials don't understand transgender athletes", trans writer Katelyn Burns says there are alternatives to politicians and leagues trying to control trans athletes with misguided regulations.

Mack Beggs, a trans boy, recently won a girls' wrestling title in Texas.

Trinity High School wrestler Mack Beggs was taking hormones to transition into a male when he had to compete against girls due to UIL rules.

The bill, SB 2095, sponsored by Senator Bob Hall, would allow the University Scholastic League, which governs student sports competitions to make a determination, "which may result in ineligibility, related to safety and fair play that would apply to students who are using steroids under a doctor's care".

Under the UIL's current policy, high school athletes can only compete as the gender listed on their birth certificate, one of only six states that has that rule.

Senator Sylvia Garcia said she thought Hall was lying about not introducing the bill in response to Beggs' case.

Bonnen doubts local voters would have a problem approving a tax rate if they knew it was needed to pay for police officers and firefighters.

A judge in Austin blocked the move amid concerns that the agency was overstepping its remit and that the nature of the facilities means they should not qualify as childcare centres. Bonnen said the committee will continue hearing testimony if the House takes a break or after it finishes meeting Wednesday.

Bowen was previously special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction under presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

House Bill 515 would eliminate two standardized exams now required or suggested for high school graduation, including the USA history test. The Texas Senate has already approved a similar proposal. James White, R-Hillister, offered an amendment that would delay its implementation until 2021, which he said would give state leaders more time to sort out the details.

A late tea party-backed change on the floor requires physicians to report complications within 72 hours of them occurring. Many colleges dropped the practice decades later, but experts say it has survived at some schools as a way to rein in protests and to regulate outside provocateurs looking for campus soapboxes. Agencies would also be fined an additional $1,000 a day for failing to comply. Furthermore, the bill's requirement that a student provide UIL with "health-related information" when seeking an exception has the potential for an unnecessarily invasive and unduly burdensome investigation into a student's medical background.
