Democratic senators in the Nevada legislature passed a “last-minute” amendment Friday which would fine school boards if they adopted policies restricting biological boys from entering girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms, as well as participating in girl’s sports.
Amendment 674 of AB 423 passed the Nevada Senate with 12 Democrats voting for the measure (with one excused) and all eight Republicans voting against it, according to the Nevada legislature’s website. The measure would enable the Nevada Department of Education to fine school boards $5,000 per day if they attempted to block biological boys from “school facilities or activities,” according to the amendment’s text.
Sen. Ira Hansen (R-Sparks) said in a tweet it was an “abuse of power” to put the amendment up for a vote without a “hearing at the last minute.”
On the floor he said he understood the amendment aimed to deny “the right of school boards to block biological males from going into biological female bathrooms, locker rooms, or any sporting events.”
Sen. Hansen asked for clarification on the amendment.
A board of trustees shall not adopt a policy that limits the access of a pupil because of race, religious creed, color, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, ancestry, familial status or sex, to school facilities or activities.
He continued, saying that it was “pretty much what the amendment says.”
R&I – Obey
