Senate Adjourns Without Considering SB 723

The Texas State Senate has adjourned without considering SB 723, the anti-trans marriage bill. The bill was on the Senate's fast-track "intent calendar" earlier this week but was moved to the slower "regular order of business" after the Senate adjoined yesterday. We should know by the end of the day today if the bill is put back on the intent calendar for next week, or remains on the regular order of business.

In order for the bill to become law it must pass the Senate, be sent to the House, referred to House committee, and be voted out of House committee by midnight on Saturday, May 21. With only 8 days left it's looking more and more like SB 723 is about to gasp it's death rattle.
