HCRP Chairman Paul Simpson's Statement on U. S. District Judge Reed O’Connor’s ruling on Obama’s transgender bathroom directive to Public Schools:
Once again, a court has stopped illegal meddling by the Obama Administration - this time, by Washington bureaucrats who would dictate to local public schools which students can use which bathrooms. We stand with Attorney General Paxton and the State of Texas in opposing this latest example of aggressive overreach by President Obama. This, once again, shows why we need to elect Republicans to fix what’s wrong with Washington.
