After a long debate Tuesday, Texas Senators approved Senate Bill 6, which would require transgender people to use public bathrooms of their sex at birth, by a vote of 21-10.
The Senate must take up the bill again for its third reading before sending the bill to the House for its vote. The floor vote was taken in the Senate after a marathon hearing. Hundreds of individuals opposed the legislation.
For many, such as Dripping Springs ISD parents and students, the bill’s impact is personal.
