Family Speaks Out Against Texas Anti-Trans Bill
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller on Wednesday doubled down on a new dress code policy that would require workers to dress “consistent with their biological sex.”
Miller said the move is about creating an “appropriate” work environment.

“Dressing professionally and respectfully is about creating an appropriate and comfortable work environment for everyone,” Miller tweeted. “It’s common sense and common courtesy.”
The Texas Observer published the policy, which is dated Monday, April 13. A state Department of Agriculture employee told the publication that the new policy “threatens the safety of anyone who does not adhere to a binary dress code.”
The department did not respond to requests for comment on its article, the Observer wrote.
However, Miller spoke to Spectrum News about the policy and said her office has had complaints related to gender issues.
