Since 2002, Texas Republican Representative Lynn Stucky (HD-64) has been a member of the Board of Directors of The Kanakuk Institute, an extremist anti-LGBTQ religious education program that requires students and staff to abide by a homophobic and discriminatory code of conduct.
In 2017, as Texas faced a nursing home staffing crisis, three Dallas-area GOP State Representatives, Angie Chen Button (Dist. 112), Jeff Leach (Dist. 67), and Matt Shaheen (Dist. 66) voted against a critical bill that would have availed new funding to nursing homes, allowing them to hire staff and increase wages.
