Cruz Bill Entitles Fed Employees, Contractors to Up to $100K in Damages if Forced to Use Biologically-False Pronouns – By Craig Bannister (CNS News) / Nov 17, 2023
The “Safeguarding Free Speech Act” introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Friday would entitle federal employees and contractors to sue for, and collect, damages of up to $100,000 if a federal agency or department forces them to use biologically-inaccurate personal pronouns.
Cruz announced the bicameral legislation’s introduction in a press release, explaining that the bill “would prohibit federal agencies from forcing an employee or contractor to use personal pronouns that contradict with an individual’s biological sex.”
Cruz attributes the bill to a new government policy that he says violates employees’ constitutional rights to both free speech and freedom of religion:
“On October 11th, 2023, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a new ‘Gender Identity Non-Discrimination and Inclusion Policy for Employees and Applicants.’
