Statement on Gov. Greg Abbott’s Special Session Call to Include Bathroom Bill

AUSTIN The following statement on Gov. Abbott’s decision to include bathroom legislation in his Special Session call should be attributed to Chris Wallace, President of Texas Association of Business, on behalf of the Keep Texas Open for Business Coalition:

“The Governor has the prerogative of calling a special session to address issues he believes are important to Texans. Many of the issues Governor Abbott has listed for the special session will have a positive impact to the state. However, TAB is on record opposing discriminatory language such as HB2899.”
