Updated: Apr 26, 2022
The Texas Senate has passed two bills to restrict transgender student-athletes from participating on sports teams that match their gender identity.
The bills, SB 2 and SB 32, both authored by Sen. Charles Perry (R-Lubbock), allow student-athletes in K-12 schools and in public colleges and universities to participate only on sports teams that correspond with the sex listed on their birth certificate at or near the time of birth.
The bills now move to the Texas House, but it remains to be seen if they get to it this legislative session, following a walkout by House Democrats in protest of a bill placing additional restrictions on voting.
