San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg testified against the so-called “bathroom bill,” saying it “puts transgendered people in the crosshairs of discrimination,” and threatens the Texas economy.
While Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has made the legislation a top priority, House Speaker Joe Straus continues to oppose the bill.
