Lt. Gov. Patrick rebrands Texas’ ‘bathroom bill’

“The social issue of the next legislative session is likely to be bathrooms, after Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told the Dallas Regional Chamber that it would be a priority in 2017.

“It sounds like it will be the lieutenant governor’s social issue of the session. I don’t know that the speaker of the house or the governor have any appetite for it,” said Steve Rudner, chairman of Equality Texas.

Lt. Gov. Patrick relabeled the so-called bathroom bill as the “Women’s Privacy Act” and acknowledged some in the business community worry about its effect on the economy.”
