Texas Legislature Puts Discrimination Over Kids

HRC | HRC: Texas Legislature Puts Discrimination Over Kids: "The Texas Legislature adjourned yesterday having passed a discriminatory constitutional amendment to deny the rights and protections of marriage to same-sex couples while neglecting to pass a bill to fund the state’s public schools. Today Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese made the following statement:

“Texas families were hit with a one-two punch when their Legislature adjourned yesterday. With little time left at the end of their session, legislators managed to pass a constitutional amendment to deny rights to families but neglected to pass any bills to fund public schools. Providing resources to children in schools is in the interest of protecting families — denying rights to hardworking Texans is not.”"
