The Alabama Senate passed its own version of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law Thursday after a surprise amendment to a transgender bathroom bill. At the start of debate Thursday, an amendment was offered that would stop K-5 elementary teachers from “instruction” on sexuality and gender. The bill passed the Senate 26-3. Since it was amended, it needs to go back to the House for final approval. In addition to instructional limits, the bill requires students to use school bathrooms and locker rooms that match the sex on their birth certificate.
The GOP in Red states are following the templates that have be devised by renegade Florida and Texas. This will not stop until we make them stop.
The bathroom/Don't Say Gay bill passes the Alabama Senate on a 26 to 5 vote. The bill goes back to the House for concurrence or a conference committee. #alpolitics— Brian Lyman (@lyman_brian) April 7, 2022
