TEXAS WELCOMES ALL
 
 
Last week, the "Privacy Protection Act," or the "Bathroom Bill," was introduced in Austin to legislate discrimination against transgender people. VisitDallas does not support this proposed legislation and will work to stop any effort that discriminates or has an adverse effect on growing the tourism economy. Yesterday, VisitDallas and other businesses, CVBs and tourism organizations held a press conference on the steps of the State Capitol to show unity against this legislation and announce a new coalition called Texas Welcomes All.
