H.B. 2796 (USA)

On June 7 Texas Rep. Pete Olson (R) introduced the Civil Rights Uniformity Act of 2017 (H.R. 2796), a bill that seeks to “ensure that gender identity is not treated as a protected class in Federal Law or Policy without the approval of Congress.”

According to Olson, whose bill challenges redefinition of “sex” to include “gender identity” as proposed by the Obama administration with regard to the Civil Rights Act, “The Founding Fathers never intended unelected bureaucrats in federal agencies to make sweeping changes to the definition of gender,” Olson said in a statement. “While we have a new president in office, we must restore the voice of the people given to them by our Constitution and put an end to this dangerous precedent of removing Congress’ power to make laws.”
