Attorney General Paxton Statement on President Obama’s School Bathroom Directive
AUSTIN – Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday issued the following statement after the Obama Administration announced that it will be issuing a directive on school bathroom access.
“Once again, the Obama Administration has overstepped its constitutional bounds to meddle in the affairs of state and local government. Today’s announcement seeking to unilaterally redefine and expand federal law must be challenged. If President Obama thinks he can bully Texas schools into allowing men to have open access to girls in bathrooms, he better prepare for yet another legal fight.”
