Transgender bathroom bill advances in Boise

Coeur d'Alene situation points to possible need for legislation

The Idaho Senate on March 9 passed Senate Bill 1100 in a 28-7 vote. The proposed bill passed out of the House Education Committee on Wednesday morning to soon be heard on the House floor. The bill establishes additional provisions requiring separate school restrooms, changing facilities, sleeping accommodations and use of dressing and locker rooms based on students' sexes assigned at birth. Schools will also need to provide additional accommodations for students who are unwilling or unable to use facilities designed for their biological sexes.
