Transgender bills may be filed
A controversial piece of legislation has returned to Tennessee's legislature aimed forcing public school students to use the bathroom according to the gender on their birth certificates. The bill filed by Wilson County lawmakers Rep. Mark Pody, and Sen. Mae Beavers, both Republicans, has drawn criticism nationwide for discrimination against members of the LGBT community. A similar piece of legislation filed in Tennessee last year, was shelved because of opposition, including the business community. Executives from 60 large Tennessee businesses, signed a letter delivered to the Republican leaders expressing their concerns about the bill. And Attorney General Herbert Slatery issued an opinion saying the state could be in jeopardy of losing more than $1.2 billion in federal funding because of discrimination, if the bill became law. Advocates say the bill would be "devastating" to transgender students.
