In Texas, GOP State Senator presents a Bill to Undo Local LGBT Protections

Bigots are feeling themselves.

In Texas, the GOP State Sen. Bob Hall introduced a bill that would kill every LGBT rights ordinances in the state and block opportunities for new protections.

Here's more from The New Civil Rights Movement
Hall's bill is the first anti-LGBT measure filed in advance of next year's Texas Legislature, which convenes in January. Today marks the first day of pre-filing of bills for the upcoming session, in which dozens of anti-LGBT measures are likely to be considered.

Senate Bill 92 would prohibit cities, counties and other political subdivisions from adopting or enforcing "a local law that creates a protected classification or prohibits discrimination on a basis not contained in the laws of this state."

Because Texas state law doesn't include sexual orientation or gender identity, cities and counties would be prohibited from enforcing LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinances.
It begins
