INDIANAPOLIS — A bill that would restrict transgender people to using only the school bathrooms for the gender they were assigned at birth has been filed in the Indiana General Assembly.

The bill was filed and read in the Indiana House Committee on Education on Thursday.

The intro text of the bill:

Biological sexual identity. Provides that student facilities in public school buildings must be designated for use by female students or male students and may be used only by the students of the biological sex for which the facility is designated. Provides that if a school corporation or charter school designates athletic programs as either athletic programs for males or athletic programs for females, a student may participate only in the athletic programs corresponding to the student’s biological sex.

The Indiana Transgender Network brought the bill to the community’s attention on Thursday through their Facebook page.
