The top local stories this morning from KERA News: After some changes, Texas Senators passed a version of the so-called bathroom bill just after midnight.
The bill would regulate restroom use in public schools and government buildings, based on the sex listed on a person's birth certificate. Senators also added a provision to include other forms of state-issued identification.
The legislation now heads to the House, which has been less receptive to the proposal.
