Public School 'Bathroom Bill' Becomes Law In Tennessee
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has signed a bill into law that leaves public school open to lawsuits if they allow transgender students, faculty or other staff to use multi-person restrooms and locker rooms, reports the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
Formally named House Bill 1233/Senate Bill 1367, the new law requires public schools to provide alternative facilities where transgender student can relieve themselves. Examples of such alternatives would be a single-occupancy restroom or faculty restroom.
The new law doesn't allow public schools to permit a person access to a restroom or changing facility that is designated to be used by the sex opposite of which that person was born.
