CURRENT LEGISLATION

Anti-Disrcimination

Texas Students United OPPOSES HB46. HB46 would roll back existing municipal anti-discrimination protections that go beyond the state level and expose vulnerable groups to abuse.


Texas Students United OPPOSES HB50. Similarly to HB46, HB50 would prohibit school districts from extending anti-discrimination protections, harming vulnerable youth.


Texas Students United OPPOSES SB23. As the Senate counterpart to HB46, SB23 would prohibit any political subdivision from passing a non-discrimination ordinance.


Texas Students United OPPOSES SB3/SB91. These two almost identical, anti-transgender "bathroom bills" from Sen. Kolkhorst are hateful, harmful, and unnecessary.


Tell your legislators to oppose bathroom bils!

Public Education

Texas Students United OPPOSES HB52. This bill would create additional education options for students with disabilities, but there are several concerns as written. Read our statement.


Texas Students United SUPPORTS HB54. This bill mandates that school districts reimburse teachers up to $600 a year for classroom supplies at or below the sixth grade level.


Texas Students United OPPOSES HB58. By creating a voucher program similarly to SB3, HB58 would endanger science education and potentially prove to be unconstitutional.


Texas Students United SUPPORTS SB31. Parents are often able to provide a unique perspective on education. This bill would require a non-voting parent trustee position on school boards.
