Texas Politician Wants to Punish Pro-LGBT Schools

By Neal Broverman

A Texas state representative filed a bill that would punish school districts that enact pro-LGBT policies.

Republican Drew Springer drafted his legislation in response to the Pflugerville, Tex. school district, which recently announced it's offering domestic partner benefits to teachers and staff. Springer's bill would cut 7.5% of a district’s healthcare funding from the state if it offers such benefits.

"Our tax-dollars are for educating kids, not for enacting policies that attempt to get the state to recognize homosexual relationships," Springer wrote in a press release. "To think Pflugerville has sued the state for more funding, while at the same time bankrolling a lifestyle most Texans do not agree with is quite disturbing to me."

Another Republican state representative, Matt Krause, wants to cut funding for any public university that doesn't allow religious groups to discriminate against gay members. Read more here.
