Leave No Doubt: Vote For Proposition 6 To Signal Strong Support for Protecting Privacy
Republican Primary election voters have an opportunity to leave no doubt that there is popular support for protecting privacy via Proposition 6.
Keeping men out of women’s restrooms, showers, and changing areas in public schools and government buildings is a common-sense goal supported by a majority of Texans, including the majority of members of the Texas Legislature, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and Governor Greg Abbott.
While it was unfortunate that Texas House leadership blocked the Texas Privacy Act, a bill to protect privacy of Texans, during the recent legislative session, Proposition 6 appears as one of 11 ballot propositions on Texas Republican Primary election ballots to gauge the will of the voters on critical issues facing Texas.
While these propositions do not affect state law or write the party platform, each of the below items is supported by the Texas GOP platform. We include the ones pertaining to our work on faith and family below:
Proposition 3: Republicans in the Texas House should select their Speaker nominee by secret ballot in a binding caucus without Democrat influence. We recommend a Yes vote.
Proposition 5: Texas families should be empowered to choose from public, private, charter, or homeschool options for their children’s education, using tax credits or exemptions without government constraints or intrusion. We recommend a Yes vote.
Proposition 6: Texas should protect the privacy and safety of women and children in spaces such as bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers in all Texas schools and government buildings. We recommend a Yes vote.
Proposition 7: I believe abortion should be abolished in Texas. We recommend a Yes vote.
Proposition 9: Texas demands that Congress completely repeal Obamacare. We recommend a Yes vote.
Early voting ends March 2, with primary election day being Tuesday, March 6. The Texas GOP has the full list of ballot propositions here.
