    no I didn't. Unlike some states Texas has a process to change your gender on your birth certificate. It basically requires an MD certifying you are changing or have changed your gender. No big deal. Get your note, cuck.

    Texas Leads the Country in Scientifically-Baseless Abortion Laws

    And, according to new research, Texas has some of the most unscientific abortion laws in the country.

    Texas is tied with Kansas for having the largest number of scientifically unfounded restrictions on abortion in the U.S., according to
    a study released Tuesday by the Guttmacher Ins ute, a organization that crunches the numbers on U.S. abortion laws.

    The repeal of HB2 was the only reason keeping Texas from coming out in first place.

    Texas House moves to require new abortion reporting data

    Health facilities that perform abortions may soon have to release data on complications that arise during and after the procedure — another move by GOP lawmakers to crack down on abortions in Texas.

    to require hospitals, birthing centers, community health centers and freestanding emergency rooms that perform abortions — not just abortion clinics — to submit quarterly complication reports to the Department of State Health Services. It's a move supporters hope will give them a fuller scope of problems associated with the procedure.

    Against their opponents' objections, GOP lawmakers also tacked on an amendment creating an online database for complications at abortion clinics, requiring doctors to report to the state within 72 hours of a problem and

    requiring information as personal as the date of the woman's last menstrual cycle and her marital status.

    "It's important to make sure complications that arise in abortions are disclosed and make sure we have the right data,"

    Texas Seeks Medicaid Money It Gave Up Over Planned Parenthood Ban

    Four years after Texas gave up millions of dollars in federal Medicaid funds so it could ban Planned Parenthood from participating in a family planning program for low-income women, the state is asking the Trump administration for the money back.

    If the administration agrees to restore the funding for Texas, it could effectively give states the greenlight to ban Planned Parenthood from Medicaid family planning programs with no financial consequences.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott jokes about shooting reporters after celebrating gun bill



    Following the bill signing, Abbott tested out a few guns at an upstairs shooting range.

    “I’m gonna carry this around in case I see any reporters,” Abbott joked while holding his bullet-ridden target sheet.

    More TX Repug autocracy and pre-emption

    Abbott grappled with local tree regulations targeted in special session

    Before he became governor, Greg Abbott was asked to replant trees on his Austin property — a regulation he has set out to axe during the upcoming special session of the Texas Legislature

    “I wanted to cut down a common pecan tree in my yard, and the City of Austin told me, no, I could not cut it down and I had to pay money to the City of Austin to add more trees to my yard because I wanted to cut down one very common tree that was in a bad location,” Abbott said on WBAP Morning News last week.

    “It’s socialistic
    , is what it is,” he said.


    https://www.texastribune.org/2017/06/12/austin-homeowner-gov-abbott-grappled-tree-regulations/


    I think developers would benefit since Abbott would allow them to denude a lot of natural trees to build, overriding municipal and county regs that try to preserve tress.

    So a blue city or county regs are socialistic, but red TX Repug regs aren't, right?

    Texas law bars parents from suing schools — even when their children fall into a den of rattlesnakes

    According to personal injury lawyer John Kemmrer Ivey, “the State of Texas and the school district doesn’t care” about children harmed due to negligence at school.

    Texas has the strongest laws in the country protecting schools against litigation. The only way a school can be sued is if an injury occurs in a motor vehicle.

    Houston attorney Al Durrell’s five-year-old son was carried upside down from the cafeteria to the principal’s office and his jaw was broken in the process. The school called Durrell saying there was blood on his son and his clothing and they didn’t know whose it was. When he picked up his son, the boy wasn’t talking and pointed to his mouth. His father rushed the child to the dentist where two teeth had to be pulled and they discovered the broken jaw.

    Court do ents show program coordinator “Krystal Perkins stated that her elbow had come into contact with C.B.D.’s face in the hallway. Beth Bonnette [school principal] also stated that she had contact with C.B.D.” The third school employee involved was listed as a school administrator. C.B.D. are the initials used to protect Durrell’s son’s iden y.


    But despite his best efforts, the boy’s father still doesn’t know what happened, despite cameras recording the incident.

    The reason is that the school falls under the doctrine of sovereign immunity.
    The State of Texas “has long recognized that sovereign immunity, unless waived, protects the State of Texas, its agencies, and its officials from lawsuits for damages, absent legislative consent to sue the State,”

    according to “A Synopsis of Texas and Federal Sovereign Immunity Principles.”

    There’s also a $100,000 cap on any damages given to a single person or a single incident.


    Durrell was first told he could have a copy of the footage of the incident but was then told he’d have to subpoena it. A judge ordered the district to turn the tapes over. The district stalled until the deadline and then claimed the video was no longer available because someone “accidentally” recorded over it.


    Durrell is taking the case to federal court because as a child diagnosed with ADHD and epilepsy, his son is “a member of a protected class” and can use federal civil rights statutes to charge Texas isn’t willing to provide protections.


    “Texans hear so much propaganda
    (VRWC/Repug LIES) about ‘frivolous lawsuits’ in Texas that they assume you can sue for anything,” Ivey explained.

    “Unfortunately,

    public school districts and community colleges are protected from suits, about [almost] anything.”

    In Texas, Another Medical Marijuana Fail



    • Shutterstock

    In the state's latest medical marijuana hiccup, the Texas Department of Public Safety has

    approved only three dispensary licenses

    — which will give companies the right to synthesize and distribute CBD— out of 43 applicants.

    That was after the agency estimated that

    Texas would need a minimum of 12 dispensaries

    to serve patients across the state.

    "The high cost of producing CBD combined with the relatively small market that exists in Texas will drive up prices to astronomical levels," he said. With few dispensaries spread out across state, "only a fortunate few patients who can afford it will be able to get the medicine."

    there are about 40,000 epileptic people in Texas who could benefit from the use of CBD, and that 22 dispensaries

    —not 3— might meet that demand. Under DPS's current plan, people living in rural areas far away from the urban-centered dispensaries will have to drive hours to get treatment.

    doctors must "prescribe" CBD to patients. But that means they risk losing their DEA license as pot is classified alongside heroin or LSD.

    http://www.sacurrent.com/the-daily/a...marijuana-fail

    "compassionate Texanism"


    DPS is a medical group?

    I'm surprised TX actually got this far, but of course, they ed it up badly.

    And if racist Warrior on Drugs Sessions so much as winks at TX, the dispensaries will be shut down

    TX begging the Feds for Mo Money

    Texas hospitals fear losing $6.2B Medicaid deal

    Clinics will be closed, people will get sick, but Texas is calling the Medicaid expansion "broken"

    Texas rejected billions in federal aid to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, calling the program “broken.” But now it’s asking the Trump administration to renew a deal that’s brought the state an additional $6.2 billion a year under Medicaid to help care for the poor.

    Half the money is used to help hospitals finance care for the uninsured, and the rest goes to hospitals and other providers to test regional programs to improve care and access, such as opening school-based health clinics to steer people away from expensive emergency room visits.


    State officials are hoping to win a 21-month extension of an agreement that began in 2011 and will expire in December.

    Several states receive such funds but Texas’ allocation is the highest. To put Texas’ request in perspective, $6.2 billion represents more than a third of what the federal government now contributes to the state’s Medicaid program annually.

    Texas kicks in the balance to pay for its $29 billion Medicaid program, which covers nearly 4.8 million people.

    Obamacare Medicaid funding would have added 1 million Texans to the program.

    But after the U.S. Supreme Court made the Medicaid expansion optional for states, Texas lawmakers bristled at having anything to do with Obamacare or expanding government health coverage.

    New Yorker uses TY Texas as the ty result of how America is devolving.

    ===================

    America’s Future Is Texas



    With right-wing zealots taking over the legislature even as the state’s demographics shift leftward, Texas has become the nation’s bellwether.

    Texas is as politically divided as the rest of the U.S., but a

    recurrent crop of crackpots and ideologues has fed its reputation for proud know-nothingism and retrograde thinking.
    The state is as politically divided as the rest of the nation. One can drive across it and be in two different states at the same time:

    FM Texas and AM Texas.

    FM Texas is the silky voice of city dwellers, the kingdom of NPR. It is progressive, blue, reasonable, secular, and smug—almost like California.

    AM Texas speaks to the suburbs and the rural areas:

    Trumpland. It’s endless bluster and endless ads. Paranoia and piety are the main items on the menu.

    Nirenberg Joins 17 Other Texas Mayors in Opposing Gov. Abbott's Big-Government Priorities

    Whether its prohibiting cities from upholding tree laws or forcing public schools to keep trans kids out of bathrooms, Governor Greg Abbott has made limiting local control the focus of the Texas Legislature special session.

    “I’m calling for further legislation that fully pre-empts [local control],” said Abbott

    ... when he unveiled the session's priorities in June. "We don’t need a patchwork quilt of regulations.

    The majority of Abbott's 20 special session priorities
    are aimed at squashing local government control.

    Lawmakers will consider bills that override city rules for

    regulating constriction projects,

    public restrooms,

    special need programs in public schools,

    property taxes and

    annexation.

    Even the smallest city regulations will get a legislative analysis — the mayors sent this letter the same day

    Abbott eviscerated cities for penning rules that protect older trees in the city, calling it "socialism."

    Increasingly anti-business, Republicans have just about dismantled the Texas Miracle

    AUSTIN — The once mighty Texas Miracle is rapidly becoming the Texas Debacle.


    After years of leading the nation's job growth, Texas has now sunk near the bottom: 39th, to be exact. The Republican mantra of lower taxes and still-lower regulation has done nothing but disprove itself. Meanwhile, the Republicans that control state government have convened a special session with economic growth nowhere on the agenda — indeed, the opposite is true. The Republican Party has completed an astonishing metamorphosis: It is unabashedly anti-business.


    Not all that long ago, Texas was indeed a bit of a miracle, and that went on even after the rest of the country picked up a little economic steam. From 2007 to 2015, Texas created over 1.4 million jobs, more than the next six states combined. Rick Perry and conservatives from Austin to Washington crowed that the Texas juggernaut was the result of low taxes and few regulations.


    Enter Greg Abbott, and the juggernaut becomes more of a Lilliput. Abbott certainly didn't increase taxes or expand regulation, but he has shown scant interest in economics, save for taking credit at a grand opening or two and repeating the mantra about taxes and regulation. Meanwhile, the Legislature has steadily drifted into opposition of business.


    Companies like American Airlines, Google and members of the Texas Association of Business are opposed to micro-managing cities — where the economic growth has been created — while Republicans want to do precisely that, down to asking people's nationality and policing bathrooms. Abbott calls these "values." And values, of course, are the first refuge of politicians who can't deliver the economic goods.


    Under Abbott, the state government has simply stopped crowing about jobs and growth because, well, there isn't much of either. The governor has shown up in Plano and San Antonio to pat himself on the back for the relocation of Toyota's headquarters and a Boeing division, respectively, but he made only a passing reference to the economy when he declared his re-election campaign.


    And yet the numbers don't lie. At 4.8 percent, the Texas unemployment rate is higher than the national average for the first time in years. That percentage, by the way, means that 700,000 Texans are out of work. The state's overall economic output, the gross state product, has been flat at $1.6 trillion annually even as the state's population continues to rise. That means that Texas now is just about on par with Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi, states with small economies that are nearly perpetually stalled for structural reasons. Now in Texas, too, flat is the new up.


    The fact is that superficial political bumper stickers don't explain complex business decisions. What about dreaded, liberal California with its regulations, taxes and laws? Unemployment there is actually lower than in Texas. And plenty of high-tax, high-regulation, Democratic states top the list of the best job markets right alongside low-tax, low-regulation Republican states. Colorado, North Dakota, Hawaii, Nebraska and New Hampshire are the top five. This year, Washington ranked as the best state for business in CNBC's annual survey of executives, while Texas tumbled to fourth — out of the top two spots for the first time in 11 years.


    The dogma that has been subs uted for economic wisdom in the Republican Party is wrong. A business gets started in Texas or moves here for a dozen reasons, the most important of which are availability of capital, quality of workers, costs of production and quality of life. Do taxes and regulations enter into the picture? Sure. But so do workforce readiness, education, infrastructure, quality of life and cost of living.


    Abbott and Texas Republicans certainly aren't talking about the debacle over jobs because they don't want to bring up an issue on which they've failed and on which their empty parroting about taxes and regulations has been disproved. Or maybe they're not talking about economic growth because they don't know anything about it — except maybe how to stand in its way.
