A Texas Democrat revived a bill to bar transgender students from competing on school sports teams that align with their gender identity after the bill  failed in a House committee.

Harold Dutton, who chairs the state House Public Education committee, said Friday he revived Senate Bill 29 because a bill of his didn’t pass the day before.

I wish I did, because I’d be in a better position to make this vote,” Dutton said Friday, referring to trans student athlete participation.

On Thursday night, Dutton presented a bill that would have allowed Texas Education Commissioner Michael Morath to remove members of the school board from their positions.

Alma Allen, who argued that the bill would give the Texas Education Agency too much power over an independent school district.

“I'm just real tired of them using my kid as some sort of pawn in their weird political p------ contest,” Briggle said, adding that this isn’t the first time the Texas Legislature has targeted trans children and teenagers.

Ricardo Martinez, CEO of Equality Texas, an LGBTQ advocacy group, said the bill prevents trans middle school students from fully participating in their school communities
