Texas state Rep. Matt Krause (R) had proposed an amendment to an unrelated bill that would have allowed university student groups to willfully discriminate without losing their funding. The Dallas Voice reports that thanks to a conference committee late last week, the objectionable amendment was stripped from the bill, ensuring its demise.

Krause’s amendment was the last in a series of proposed anti-LGBT bills, all of which were defeated this legislative session. Though no explicitly pro-LGBT bills passed, a record number were filed and some passed out of committee for the first time in over a decade.
