Texas may strip away transgender marriage rights
(Austin, Texas) Two years after Texas became one of the last states to allow transgendered people to use proof of their sex change to get a marriage license, Republican lawmakers are trying to roll back the clock.
Advocates for the transgendered say a proposal to bar transgendered people from getting married smacks of discrimination and would put their legally-granted marriages in danger of being nullified if challenged in court.

One of the Republican sponsors of the legislation said hes simply trying to clean up the 2009 law in a state that bans same-sex marriage under the Constitution.

The Texas Constitution, Sen. Tommy Williams said, clearly defines marriage between one man and one woman.
