Indeed, the Republicans of Texas would like to put in place a measure preventing trans* people from the access of the bathrooms according to their gender. However, it would seem that the Speaker of the House is not necessarily in favor of this measure.
"I think we should be very careful about doing something that can make Texas less competitive," he said.

For the moment, the governor of Texas Greg Abbott has not given his opinion on the matter.
