Strange issues statement over new federal transgender student guidelines

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) – The state’s Attorney General Luther Strange on Friday issued a statement in response to the Obama Administration’s guidance for how transgender students should be treated, especially with regard to bathroom and locker room access and housing. You can read his full statement below.

 “The Obama Administration’s new guidance document is just one more example of the kind of federal overreach that we have come to expect from this White House.  School bathroom use is an issue that should be decided by parents, teachers, and principals—not federal bureaucrats.  The DOJ guidance document is also wrong on the law.  Title IX allows schools to have separate facilities for separate sexes.  The law says ‘sex,’ not gender identity.  If the Obama Administration tries to enforce this absurd edict, I will work with other Attorneys General to challenge it.”
