Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick of Texas laid out a proposal to require people to use restrooms correlating with their birth gender in state and local government facilities as well as public schools. So reports The Wall Street Journal.

Patrick unveiled his plan right before the Texas state Legislature was set to begin session. He said the legislation would protect children and those using public bathrooms.
