The Kentucky Senate has acted to require public school students to use the bathroom of their biological sex. Much of the committee discussion centered on a Louisville high school's decision to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their gender identity. The bill is sponsored by Senator C.B. Embry of Morgantown. "This bill is about student privacy; it also deals with choices, common sense," said Embry.
Paducah Senator Danny Carrol argued that the concerns of students who not feel comfortable sharing restrooms with transgender students, need to be considered.
