Lawmakers in Texas are already gearing up to push anti-LGBT, anti-business bills. But our communities—especially our local small businesses—cannot afford losses like the ones we’ve seen in other states that have passed these types of laws.
The evidence is clear that anti-LGBT legislation could be a disaster for Texas businesses. In North Carolina, HB 2 has cost the state more than $600 million in lost revenue. Indiana saw economic declines of at least $60 million when it passed a similar law. And the Texas Association of Business estimates Texas could lose $8.5 billion and 185,000 jobs. Despite this, some legislators have made passing legislation like HB 2 his top priority.
