Introduced by Bob Marshall, the bill would force people to use bathroom facilities only according to their biological gender, the gender of birth, stated in their birth certificate. So the transgender people would be made use bathroom facilities which are not matched with the gender they identify themselves with.
Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe immediately condemned a bill swearing to try his best for it not to be accepted into law. Following the doing away with Marshall’s bill, he accused legislators of breaking campaign promises. Those behind the bill say it is necessary to protect children. Governor Terry McAuliffe signed executive order 61, which protects the rights of LGBT people in public services. The Order extends pre-existing protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity for state employees to contractors and in the delivery of state services.
