Nashville’s $58 million price tag on bathroom bill

If the legislature passes the bill that would restrict transgender students to using the bathroom of their birth sex, Mayor Barry says, the city would lose out on $58 million in convention spending.  And that’s not good, considering we just spent a good amount of money for our new convention center.

“This legislation doesn’t reflect Nashville’s values and doesn’t do anything to improve the quality of life for citizens of our city or state,” the mayor wrote.

That’s in addition to the money the state AG says we would lose in federal Title IX funding if the bill becomes law.
