U.S. Supreme Court Leaves Texas on California’s Discrimination List

SCOTUS won't hear Texas' case asking to be removed from California's discrimination list.

Texas recently made headlines by passing a discriminatory measure against LGBTQ+ individuals, leading to its inclusion on California's list of states to be avoided. However, Texas' efforts to challenge this decision through legal means did not unfold as anticipated.

Texas recently passed a measure allowing child welfare providers to deny service based on their religious beliefs, and California sees this measure as blatant discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Yet, since 2016, California has banned state-funded travel to other U.S. states that discriminate against LGBTQ people.

With this new measure instituting a distinction between people, California now considered Texas a state to avoid.

Texas has taken the case to court in an attempt to get out of it.

The case was filed directly with the US Supreme Court, as it is a dispute between two U.S. states, but it remained to be seen if the Supreme Court would accept the case. But it did not. It rejected it. So Texas will remain on the list of discriminatory states. This will certainly have a financial impact.
