California’s attorney general blocked state government funded travel to four more states on Thursday after each of them passed laws limiting the rights of LGBT people, the Gateway Pundit reports.
In a press conference in San Francisco, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced new restrictions that bans state-funded or state-sponsored travel to Kentucky, Alabama, South Dakota and Texas.
The list had already included North Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas and Mississippi.
Texas’ inclusion drew a response Friday from John Wittman, who is the press secretary of Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
Wittman said: “California may be able to stop their state employees, but they can’t stop all the businesses that are fleeing over taxation and regulation and relocating to Texas.”
Becerra placed Texas on his travel ban list after Gov. Abbott last week signed HB 3859, which permits foster care agencies to reject adoptions and services to children and parents based on “sincerely held religious beliefs.”
