Texas Rep. Matt Krause, R-Fort Worth, pictured in 2017 in Austin, Texas. In October, he launched a statewide inquiry into school library titles dealing with topics like race, gender and sexuality.

One of Texas' largest school districts is reviewing more than 400 of its library books following a Republican lawmaker's statewide inquiry into school library titles dealing with topics like race, gender and sexuality.

The North East Independent School District in San Antonio says it was already in the process of reviewing its library books when State Rep. Matt Krause, who chairs the Texas House's General Investigating Committee, announced his inquiry in late October.

Krause — who is also a candidate for Texas attorney general — sent schools statewide a 16-page list of roughly 850 books related to gender identity, sexuality, race and sexual health, and asked officials to tell him how many copies of the books their libraries hold and how much their districts spent on them.
