Did Greg Abbott oppose the bathroom bill?

There are 60 comments on the Off the Kuff story from Mar 16, 2018, titled Did Greg Abbott oppose the bathroom bill?. In it, Off the Kuff reports that:

Gov. Greg Abbott himself was opposed to the controversial "bathroom bill" that dominated debate at the Texas Capitol for much of 2017, according to a state representative involved in keeping the legislation from passing the Texas House. State Rep. Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, the chairman of the House State Affairs committee that blocked the bill from reaching the House floor for a full vote, said Tuesday that Abbott "did not want that bill on his desk."

'Restrooms' not 'bathrooms'! Most public use ones don't contain baths in them...

All Restrooms should be single, stand alone, and handicapped accessible with a changing table.

New building designs should have several of them on every level of a multi story building.

There are many times when parents need some extra room and privacy to help their children.

This design takes into account all kinds of issues multi stall designed restrooms present.

It protects the privacy of everyone, it is accessible and safer.

Yes, this may be more expensive, but in the long run, it is better for the general public.

Sanitation should be a top priority since we have experienced the worst flu season in a while.

Maybe it would be possible to design these stand alone restrooms to be automatically cleaned between customers?

I don't know where you live, But every where in the country I've been has "stand alone " stalls with locking doors (That includes Texas) The latest designs have solid walls floor to ceiling. I'm a Transexual and I use the ladies rooms quite a bit. I've never had a problem. However, I get in do what I'm there for and get out. I don't hang around. The few times I've had to deal with other women in the ladies room, they usually just smiled and went on with what they were going to do (Behind a closed and locked door) It was literally, No Big Deal! As far as the kids go, Facilities have been improving for children for some time now. No issue there!

TerriB, if you are really confused to the point you do not know if you are male or female then you need professional help, you cannot be both.

As a matter of fact, symptoms of both genders can and do exist in the same body. Transexual people have existed since before recorded time. In fact, we are mentioned in the bible. Transgender pharaohs are in the British Museum, although they are not labeled as such. In graves, 5000 Y.O. Male bodied people, with female funerals have been found. The American Indians had their Berdaches, the Asian Indians have their Hijras which are recorded for 4000 years. I know you won't reseach any of this! So, tell me about my "Confusion".

Walgreens has instituted a national policy of allowing men into female restrooms, joining Target in their silliness of putting your daughters and wives at risk. A score of such violations specific to such policies have already occurred in Target stores. Costs are going up in Target to pay for the quiet payouts to the victims of such assaults.

Boycott them both.

Hey white supremacist [sic], how are you enjoying being defamed and devalued by your right wing, white supremacist [sic] bedfellows?

You meant "evidence of," not "symptoms of." You meant "both sexes," not "both genders."

You're a nutcase, of course, but you're uneducated to boot.
