Texas Leads. Where's Wisconsin?

Here's a notable statement from the Lieutenant Governor of Texas.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) told school administrators they should "not enact" the policy mandated by the Obama administration that students be allowed access to restrooms and locker rooms according to their "gender identity" rather than their biological sex....

He's right, of course.

So.  Where is the corresponding statement from anyone in the Walker Administration?

It's here:

Gov. Scott Walker is also weighing in.

"I think the bottom line is issues like that need to be addressed at the local level. That's what we elect school boards for. It's not an issue the federal government should be involved in, nor for that matter the state. Really it should be left up to the local school districts," he said.

Not exactly a thunderous response, but clearly in line with the 10th Amendment.
