Bill Number: HB 130
Bill Description: Relating to authorizing a marriage between two persons of the same sex in this state and repealing the statutory prohibition against the recognition of a civil union or similar relationship entered into in another state between two persons of the same sex.
Author: Anchia (D-Dallas)
Related Bills: SB 98
Analysis: This bill would add language to the Texas Family Code to allow for same-sex marriages.
Position: Secular Texas holds that the government should treat all people equally under the law. The stance against same-sex marriage, while nominally is built on the disproven argument that it undermines family values, is at heart a religious superstition being enforced through law.
