How will lawmakers and police enforce the Bathroom bills?
Republicans say they want less government, but still insist on passing legislation over personal body functions. Are they going to use our tax money to staff law enforcement in every bathroom to check to make sure that people are using the correct bathrooms? Are we going to have to carry our birth certificates around? It did not work in N. Carolina, why expect it to work in Texas?
There is no provision in the Texas law that adds extra money for policing and enforcement. The law is simply an excuse to allow people to name and shame anyone who looks like they're using the wrong bathroom.
Doubtless the result here in Texas will be the same as in North Carolina: after a few months, when the economic impact of companies refusing to do business here is felt, the law will be rolled back.

Should the police have to obey the same window tint laws that they enforce against citizens? I've noticed police cars that have very dark tint all the way around, that would be considered illegal on any other vehicle on the road.
