With several business leaders rallied against Senate Bill 6, also known as the bathroom bill, a new study shows Texas could lose $5.6 Billion over the next ten years if the bill becomes law. William Mellor with Angelou economics, which is in charge of the study, said scores of tech companies have signed petitions and open letters condemning the bill and some even vowed to leave Texas should it become law. Mellor reported, this bill will also hinder job creation, he added 83% of project site selectors said this makes Texas less appealing to businesses and 43% added if the bathroom bill passes, it would affect their own willingness to bring projects to Texas. Locally he continued, this bill could stifle business growth by limiting what talent wants to come to town.
