The Texas Lieutenant Governor claims the study which showed that the state would lose approximately 8 billion dollars if the bathroom bill was accepted to be mostly a lie. Dan Patrick earlier this year said moves to introduce such a bill as has proven catastrophic to states like North Carolina, would be a priority in the new legislative session.

The Texas Association of Business showed that the state won’t cope with the financial disaster caused by the bill. But the Let. Gov. claims that he does not trust these figures. I hope all the media sources who printed that bogus TAB report will at least do a story now that TAB report has been shown not to be valid.” TAB responded in a statement: “We don’t need studies alone to prove the negative impact of this unnecessary legislation. The hard data exists in real time and in dramatically quantifiable ways when you look at North Carolina and Indiana today. This represents the tip of the iceberg for Texas, and we must avoid this collision course by rejecting discriminatory legislation.”
