Texas AG threatens “every possible response” after Austin passes resolution telling city employees to disobey law protecting children

The Right Scoop

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton just issued a warning to the city of Austin after the city council passed a resolution telling city employees to disobey the new law protecting children from transgender pretender medicine and surgeries.

Paxton said his office would consider “every possible response to ensure compliance” if Austin actually disobeys the law.

I say ‘actually’ because, as Paxton points out in his statement, the resolution, as it is written, is nothing more than virtue signaling.

He explains:

"On May 2, 2024, the Austin City Council passed a resolution that purportedly directs the City Manager and city employees not to comply with Texas’s prohibition of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and invasive surgeries for children who believe their gender is different than their biological sex. Riddled with problems, the resolution starts with the falsehood that such prohibited treatments have ‘proven to be evidence based, medically necessary, and lifesaving.’ In addition to a growing body of medical research rejecting such claims, Texas concluded that the proposed treatments for minors are dangerous, and banned the practices by passing SB 14.

Further, the resolution is no more than an empty political statement. Each clause directing the City Manager to defy SB 14 is prefaced with the nonsensical qualification, ‘except to the extent required by law.’ In other words, the Austin City Council would order the City Manager and city employees to follow the law while pretending to say the exact opposite.”
