Speaker Straus: ‘No I Won’t’ Block Texas Bathroom Bill

AUSTIN,TX (CBSDFW.COM) — Texas House Speaker Joe Straus has definitively said that he will not block the so-called Texas ‘Bathroom Bill.’

Straus said while he opposes the bill, he won’t keep it from getting a full vote in the Texas House.

Straus also said he won’t pressure other house Republicans how to vote.

“I don’t support it. But I remind people all the time. I’m one person out of 150,” said Straus speaking to CBS 11’s political reporter Jack Fink. “I don’t think you’re going to find members out there who will tell you I lean on them and vote ‘for’ something or ‘against’ something based on the district I come from,” he continued.
