This recently appeared on the NCSE website. Texas house Bill 285 got "slammed", on May 6th 2013. If it was enacted, "[a]n institution of higher education may not discriminate against or penalize in any manner, especially with regard to employment or academic support, a faculty member or student based on the faculty member's or student's conduct of research relating to the theory of intelligent design or other alternate theories of the origination and development of organisms." The sponsor was "inspired" by "Expelled".

Members of the University of Austin explained in a pdf (in reply below) their opposition.

"At our church’s funerals, we sing gospel songs (out loud) to God." -- FL

"So the center of the earth being hotter than the surface is a "gross
violation of the second law of thermodynamics??" -- Ted Holden
