On Friday, Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan (R-21st District) claimed that Republicans have the votes to pass Senate Bill 3, which would force transgender students to compete in school sports in alignment with the gender listed on their original birth certificates. He told the Texas Tribune that one co-sponsor of the legislation “has close to 80 coauthors on the bill,” representing more than half of lawmakers seated in the chambers. Earlier versions of the bill have failed to pass as House Democrats ran down the clock before the voting deadline, or fled the state to stall the passage of it and voting suppression bills.
