Via The Georgia Reporter:
A watered-down version of a bill opponents called Georgia’s version of “Don’t Say Gay” legislation appears dead in the water after failing in a crucial Senate committee Wednesday. The first version of the bill would have restricted schools, camp counselors and other authority figures from answering children’s questions about gender identity or sexual orientation. The latest version would have required all local boards of education to develop a policy for dealing with parental involvement and child privacy related to issues of gender identity..
All but one senator on the majority-Republican Senate Education and Youth Committee voted to table the measure, leaving LGBTQ advocates stunned.
