Tennessee Anti-LGBT Bill Delayed to 2017

Tennessee State Rep. Susan Lynn announced Monday that she plans to delay until next year action on a bill that would require public school students to use the restroom that corresponds with their birth-assigned gender. "I have learned that our school districts are largely following what the bill says," Lynn said. "I am still absolutely 100 percent in support of maintaining the privacy of all students. But I'm going to roll the bill over until next year so we can work on those issues." She said the controversy around the proposed law did not impact her decision.
