AUSTIN (CoveringKaty.com) – Houston Republican State Representative Dwayne Bohac is holding a state Capitol news conference today (Monday) with his son Reagan and with Santa Claus.
He sponsored a bipartisan bill that received national attention when it sailed through the Legislature this summer. It removes legal risks from exchanging holiday greetings in the classroom, and also protects holiday symbols such as a menorah or nativity scene.
Bohac said it will stop “ridiculous” past lawsuits against schools in the name of excessive political correctness.
The law also says schools are constitutionally barred from favoring one religious celebration over another. But it’s named in honor of Christmas.
