AUSTIN, TX (KAUZ) -

A national legal organization is threatening to move its annual conference out of Texas. 

Officials said the reason is because of two policies they consider to be harmful and discriminatory.

The American Association of Law Libraries Conference has met in Texas three times over the past decade, but the group said they may now have to begin looking elsewhere.

"Trans people, they want to go to the bathroom just like everybody else," Greg Lambert with the American Association of Law Libraries said. "The anti-LGBTQ bills that have passed and the number of bills that are being discussed run counter to our diversity and inclusion policies." 

Texas may also lose the business of other organizations including Fortune 500 companies and the NFL due to recent legislation.
