Speaker Straus Issues Statement on House Bill 2 ruling  print page

by: Rep. Straus, Joe

Texas House Speaker Joe Straus issued the following statement Monday in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on House Bill 2. House Bill 2 was overwhelmingly approved by the Texas Legislature and signed into law by then-Governor Rick Perry in 2013.

“The Members of the Texas House overwhelmingly supported House Bill 2 and it’s unfortunate that the Supreme Court has overturned that law.”
