- Republican Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed legislation on Tuesday that will prohibit transgenders in public schools from using the bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity.
- “The new Arkansas law requires schools to provide reasonable accommodations, including single-person restrooms. Superintendents, principals and teachers who violate the prohibition could face fines of at least $1,000 from a state panel, and parents could also file private lawsuits to enforce the measure,” reports the Associated Press.
- The law will not take effect until this summer and targets only multi-person restrooms and locker rooms at public schools as well charter schools. Students from preschool to grade 12 will be affected. Alexa Henning, the spokesperson for Sanders, said in a statement that the law will protect children.
