Texas businesses take issue with transgender bathroom law

Earlier this year, the North Carolina legislature was embroiled in controversy due to a transgender bathroom law. Numerous national tours and sporting organizations canceled or relocated events out of the state due to the discriminatory nature of the law.

The NCAA pulled its college basketball tournament games from North Carolina in 2018 and relocated the series to Texas. Small business owners in Texas say they rely on tourism dollars during big events for a significant portion of revenue. An anti-transgender bathroom bill proposed in the Texas legislature could threaten that vital out-of-state cash flow.

Could a similar bill pass in Texas?

Now, with the potential for a similar bill to pass in Texas, small business owners across the state are taking a stand against discriminatory legislation. Citizens and business owners alike from Texas have a fiercely independent nature. Therefore, the potential for government regulation combined with a public backlash that could limit revenue has small business owners thinking twice about their interests.

Since the late 1800s, numerous laws have sprung from the Constitution's 14th and 15th Amendments to give consumers more protection under the law. While the law discourages consumer discrimination by businesses, it is important that the law doesn't overstep its regulatory boundaries by turning away otherwise valuable customers.

Running a small business is difficult enough without having to deal with complex government regulations that could limit your business opportunities. With the guidance of a community-minded business law attorney, you can ensure that the law works for you.
