Friday on the evening edition of The Chad Hasty Show, District 83 Representative Dustin Burrows joined the program to talk about the end of the regular session of the 87th Texas Legislature.

Burrows and Hasty discussed the many conservative wins during the session, including Constitutional Carry, the Fetal Heartbeat Act and more, as well as what happened with highly touted conservative bills that wound up dying on the table including taxpayer-funded lobbying, restricting the governor's pandemic powers, the gender modification and transgenders in high school sports bills.

When asked whether or not a request was made to prevent the gender modification bill from being placed on the legislative calendar, Burrows said during his reply,

It did get placed on a calendar, we did not get to it. The only thing I would say that was surprising is, [Agriculture Commissioner] Sid Miller actually did ask me not to place that bill on the calendar at some point in time, and I think that was a surprise to me during the process...Hopefully he'll come on the show and you can ask him about that.
