“State Rep. Donna Howard, D-Austin, slammed the Legislature for passing ‘an onslaught of mean-spirited and destructive legislation intent on making it harder and harder for women to access their constitutionally protected right to a safe and legal medical procedure. As a mother and grandmother, I can tell you I won’t go back to a time when over a million women resorted to unsafe, illegal abortions with as many as 5,000 women dying every year.'”
“The city’s embrace of environmental protections, including a bag ban to curb litter and protect parks and green spaces and an ordinance protecting heritage trees, are key to its appeal to big companies whose employees are not just looking for fat paychecks, but quality lifestyles. They want opens spaces, robust arts and music scenes, bicycle lanes, clean streets, libraries and universities and local policies that reflect their values, including respecting the rights of gay and transgender people.”
