Stop Sexualizing Texas Kids

Priority:  Repeal Texas Penal Code “Obscenity Exemption” 43.24(c), which allows children access to harmful, explicit, or pornographic materials and 43.25(f)(2 3), which allows sexual performance by a child. In addition, prohibit teaching, exposure, and/or discussion of sexual matters (mechanics, feelings, orientation, or “gender identity” issues), and prohibit use or provision of related books and other materials using criminal, civil or other enforcement measures. Sub-Committee Chair Christin Bentley

Report: There were five bills passed that met the priority of Stopping the Sexualization of Texas Kids.  They include HB 900 by Rep. Patterson, prohibiting sexually explicit materials in Texas public schools, HB 1181 by Rep. Shaheen, which requires strict age verification for online porn, SB 12 by Sen. Hughes, prohibiting sexually oriented performances in the presence of minors, including drag shows, SB 1527 by Senators Hancock and Huffman, which provides a criminal penalty for sexually grooming children, and HB 4520 pertaining to educator employment and retirement consequences for selling, distributing, or displaying harmful materials to children.

HB 900 “The READER Act” passes its third reading in the Senate 19 to 12. It will head to Governor Abbott’s desk for signature.

Congratulations to Rep. Jared Patterson & Senator Angela Paxton for getting this to the Governor’s desk with NO amendments.
Grassroots, we couldn’t have gotten this across the finish line without you. The relentless Capitol visits, emails, and phone calls moved the needle.
Let us all pause and give HONOR and GLORY to the One to whom ALL honor is due: our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We will rest easy tonight knowing that the children of Texas are now safe from these #filthybooks.
Thank you to North Texas Conservatives for this content.
