Texas attorney general criticizes controversial anti-bias ordinance
September 10, 2013
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott criticized the San Antonio city council’s passage of an ordinance that bans city government appointees from discriminating against homosexuals and transgendered persons “by word or deed.”
“And so if someone says we’re going to stand on the (state marriage) law, they would be guilty of violating that San Antonio ordinance,” said Abbott, according to multiple media reports. “That’s just nonsensical and another reason why I think the San Antonio ordinance would be subject to a legal challenge.”
