Transgender Bathroom Bill Gaining Momentum

rr (1)

A bill that would require transgender students to use bathrooms that match their sex at birth is gaining momentum in the Tennessee legislature after passing in a House subcommittee.

The bill is advancing despite opposition from the state’s Republican governor, Bill Haslam. On Tuesday, the bill passed unanimously in the Education, Administration and Planning Subcommittee.

Tennessee’s bill would require transgender students at public grade schools and universities to use restrooms and locker rooms that match their sex on their birth certificate.
