Study gives rural lawmakers reasons to be concerned about potential economic losses from SB 6

Disrupting conference and events bookings in major metro area over time could cost rural Texas between $26.1 million and $52.5 million annually

Yet another study confirms the state’s economy will suffer if the Texas Legislature passes Senate Bill 6, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s bathroom bill.

The study conducted by Angelos Angelou of AngelouEconomics on behalf of the Texas Association of Business, which of course opposes SB 6 and similar legislation, suggests the state could lose up to $5.6 billion through 2026. And much of that damage could be felt in rural parts of the state.
