Associated Press reports. The House of Representatives had OK’d it in March, and it now goes to Republican Gov. Bill Lee for his signature or, less likely, veto.Under the legislation, this language would be included on the sign: “This facility maintains a policy of allowing the use of restrooms [or another type of accommodation] by either biological sex, regardless of the designation on the restroom.”Such signage is “offensive and humiliating,” according to the Human Rights Campaign, which issued a press release on the bill. “House Bill 1182 is a discriminatory piece of legislation crafted to generate the maximum amount of harm to Tennessee’s transgender community,” HRC President Alphonso David said in the release.
