The Texas legislative session is over—and no discriminatory "bathroom bill" has passed. But now, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick is threatening to force a costly special session just so he can advance anti-LGBT legislation mirroring SB6, the discriminatory bill he championed throughout the session.
SB6 mirrors HB2 in North Carolina—the same legislation that cost North Carolina nearly $1 billion in lost revenue and has sent the state spiraling into complete and utter chaos for the last year. Studies show that this legislation would cost Texas $5.6 billion in lost revenue through 2026.
Governor Abbott needs to hear from business leaders who oppose this harmful, anti-business legislation. He needs to know that Texas' business leaders oppose SB6—and stand firmly against any special session designed to pass this harmful bill. Rush a message to the Governor now!
