Bathroom Bill Debate

If you think Senate Bill 6, "the bathroom bill" will keep you safe, think again. Contrary to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick's pledge to keep men out of women's restrooms, Senate Bill 6 could actually force men into women's rooms and women into men's rooms. Meantime, penalties for real perpetrators of sexual assaults in restrooms have been stripped from the bill.

Will SB6 put the government in your business and drive business from Texas? Billions in lost GDP and thousands in job losses are expected if SB6 ever becomes law. Government shouldn't be telling people where they can go to the restroom.

There is an alternate plan in the Texas House that would prevent cities, counties, and school districts from enforcing any policies related to where people can use the restroom.
