DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The Texas Republican Party has approved a platform that includes positions on toll roads and limits on transgender bathroom use.

About 10,000 delegates have approved more than 300 items they want the state legislature to focus on in next year's session.

The platform says tolls should be taken off highways when the debt is paid off, and toll roads should not include any taxpayer money.

Another part of the platform says schools should require kids to use the bathroom, locker room or shower room of their biological gender.

The Texas Democratic Party holds its convention this weekend in Fort Worth.
