‘Bathroom Bill’ Hits Texas Legislative Floor
After North Carolina had much backlash from the controversial "Bathroom Bill" last year, now Texas has put into motion its own bill and will present it to the Texas Legislature.
According to NewsWest 9, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick is the one who put the bill in motion and presented it to Texas law makers which convene next week.
The "Privacy Protection Act" as it will be called in Texas is the same as the bill that caused so much controversy in North Carolina. It states that a person must use the bathroom that coincides with their sex at birth.
North Carolina faced boycotts by major sporting events such as the Final Four and could potentially lose billions in revenue now that they put the bill into law.
Lt. Governor Dan Patrick was reported as saying that he is not worried about potential boycotts in Texas.
Virginia has also introduced similar legislation this week.
