SB 816 TX filed 2017-02-11

Senator Campbell had the foresight to know that just having equal parenting bills was not going to be enough. SB 816 is a welcome answer and companion to House Representative White’s HB 453 Equal Parenting Bill.

Make sure you thank Senator Campbell for her assistance in helping families get equal parenting.

There will need to be some adjustments with the language in this Bill, as there usually is with most Bills. But this one too is a huge step in the right direction and we are very excited about this one!
