Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan (David Taffet/Dallas Voice) Outlawing drag queens and causing trans kids to commit suicide are not among the priorities of House Speaker Dade Phelan.
Instead, he would like to improve school safety, better support Texas teachers and provide a cost-of-living adjustment for retired educators in the state.
He chose six bills he would like to see passed during the current session, each written by Republicans. They’re common sense pieces of legislation that will benefit everyone in Texas, are affordable and don’t erode anyone’s rights.
Here they are: House Bill 3 by Rep. Dustin Burrows would streamline and further define the roles and responsibilities of the Texas School Safety Center and Texas Education Agency so that school safety standards can be properly enforced.
