- A California bill would require teachers, counselors, and any other employee of a school to notify parents within three days in the event their child requests to be called by a name normally used by the opposite sex or different personal pronouns, or begins using a bathroom or locker room designated for the opposite sex.
- The bill sponsored by Assemblymen Bill Essayli, R-Riverside, and James Gallagher, R-Chico, would supersede existing California law by amending the Education Code to reinforce parental rights.
- California currently allows a minor age 12 or older to request transgender treatment without parental supervision, if a counselor or doctor deems it appropriate.
