Speaker Joe Straus has said repeatedly SB 6, the Texas Privacy Act, is not a priority for him this session. The privacy and safety of Texas’ women and children ought to be at the top of Speaker Straus’ priorities. This commonsense piece of legislation would protect the privacy and safety of Texas schoolchildren, guard against unwanted intrusions into showers, bathrooms, and locker rooms, and maintain Texas’ strong business-friendly environment.
Speaker Straus needs to stop blocking this common-sense bill and let the Texas House vote on SB 6. For that to happen, he needs to hear from you. He needs to hear that you support the basic right to privacy for Texas’ women and children in public showers, restrooms, and changing rooms.

Recent polling indicates that almost 7 in 10 Texas voters, including 56% of Texas Democrats, agree that women and children ought to have their privacy and dignity safeguarded from unwanted intrusions in showers, restrooms and changing rooms, by members of the opposite sex.
We appreciate the bipartisan support for SB 6, and commend the 21 Texas Senators who supported SB 6!
