Dan Patrick pointed to that exemption in saying there is “no conflict” with Senate Bill 6.
The Super Bowl is scheduled to take place in other states through at least 2021.
That would include NRG Stadium in Houston, where the Super Bowl was held.
The legislation does exempt stadiums, convention centers and entertainment venues that are owned or leased by a governmental entity from having to follow the state’s bathroom policies.

The proposed law, known as “Senate Bill 6” or the “bathroom bill,” would require transgender people use the bathroom corresponding to the sex listed on their birth certificate rather than the one they feel most comfortable using.
A similar bill in North Carolina prompted next week’s NBA All-Star Game to be moved by the league from Charlotte to New Orleans.
