At our April Debate and Candidate Forum...
AUSTIN-- State Senator Donna Campbell will speak about religious freedom, school bathroom sanity, and pushing back against overreach at all levels of government. She will review some of the legislation she helped author and pass in the Texas Senate last session and provide a forecast of key issues for next session.
"Our rights are being challenged and stripped away at an alarming pace by the Obama Administration and sometimes even by our city governments," Senator Campbell said. "As state lawmakers, we must act to protect our citizens from edicts, ordinances, mandates, and reckless spending sprees that threaten our liberty, security, and prosperity."
Senator Campbell served as the author or sponsor of 60 pieces of legislation in the 84th Legislature that reached the Governor's desk and were enacted into law. She authored an additional 11 bills that passed the Senate, but ended up dying in the House. These included local government transparency bills, expansion of school choice, annexation reform, and American Law for American Courts. She plans to introduce variations of these again next session.
Among the most celebrated conservative legislation to pass last session were three bills she authored that strengthen Texans' second amendment rights. These included open carry, campus carry, and creating an enforcement mechanism for CHL holders to protest and remove unlawful signs that prohibited them from carrying on public property.
Most recently, Senator Campbell has made headlines by promising to carry legislation similar to North Carolina's bathroom law (HB 2) and to push back against President Obama's transgender bathroom and locker room policies in public schools.
"Public school bathrooms and locker rooms should be safe spaces, not social experiments that leave children vulnerable to members of the opposite sex without dignity or privacy," Senator Campbell stated. "There is no precedent for such a radical departure from established law, and I will fight to protect our children with every inch of my being.”
