(Worthy News) – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill that could prompt public schools and districts to face litigation if they permit transgender students or staff to use locker rooms or restrooms that don’t align with their sex at birth.
The Republican governor, who signed the bill on Friday, argued it allowed a “reasonable accommodation” for students, though LGBT advocates have dubbed the bill as discriminatory against transgender individuals.
“That bill provides equal access to every student. It’s a reasonable accommodation. It allows for accommodation for every student regardless of their gender. I think that’s a smart approach to the challenge,” Lee said, according to the Associated Press. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
