TEXAS SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE SESSION — Though "bathroom bills" targeting transgender people fizzled in deep-red states across the U.S., the issue is still white hot in Texas,  as it will be part of the special legislative session  that convenes this week in Austin.  Powerful business entities, from Apple to the NFL, oppose such a bill as discriminatory as it would require transgender people to use public restrooms according to their birth-certificate gender. But before any bills get attention,  the Legislature must first address expiration dates of certain state agencies.
