Coalition of Conservatives Support Senate Bill 6

A large coalition of conservative organizations and thought leaders announced their support of Senate Bill 6 in a letter spearheaded by Texas Values. SB6 is widely expected to pass the Senate, but it’s future in the Texas House is more clouded.

House Speaker Joe Straus recently urged businesses to oppose SB 6, a measure designed to protect women and children from predators while protecting businesses from micromanaging regulation by city councils..


We, the undersigned individuals, entities and organizations, support the Texas Privacy Act, SB 6, 
to protect the privacy, safety and dignity of Texans in bathrooms, locker rooms, and other intimate 
facilities in all government buildings, including public schools. The bill makes it clear that government 
entities may not allow biological men and boys in girl's bathrooms and changing facilities. Government officials 
are to follow the biological sex listed on a person's birth certificate, as is the practice now for UIL athletics. 
SB 6 does not apply to private businesses or interfere with a business's ability to set its own policies. 
SB 6 includes thoughtful exceptions and accommodations that take into consideration the needs and concerns of all Texans.

The State of Texas has a duty to protect the privacy, safety, and dignity of all Texans - especially in government buildings. 
In 2016 & 2017, the Federal government and some local governments and school boards in Texas have pushed for allowing boys and 
men into girls bathrooms, we need a state law, like SB 6, to have basic, consistent and transparent standards on this important 
issue across the state.

Texans overwhelmingly oppose attacks on women's privacy and safety as evidenced by Houston voters voting down a dangerous 
bathroom ordinance that would have allowed men into women's bathrooms, 61% - 39%. In addition, a recent polls show that a 
strong majority of Texas voters agree that boys shouldn’t be in bathrooms with girls.

We support the Texas Privacy Act, SB 6.
