FACT President Reacts to Defeat of Student Privacy Legislation

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (March 22, 2017) — The following statement regarding the decision of the state Senate Education Committee not to discuss Senate Bill 771 regarding the privacy and security of K-12 students in bathrooms and locker rooms is attributed to FACT President David Fowler:

The Trump administration rightly left issues regarding the privacy and security of students in public school bathrooms and locker rooms up to each state. Today, nine members of the Tennessee Senate Education Committee, seven of whom voted for this same bill last year, decided that legislation on this topic did not even merit a motion or a second. In other words, it seems the members of the committee thought other considerations weighed against taking time to discuss and vote on whether a local school system should be allowed to let a biological male to use a girls’ bathroom or locker room. I believe tens of thousands of Tennesseans will see this as an insult to their values.

The Family Action Council of Tennessee (FACT), which David Fowler heads, was formed in 2006 by a group of citizens concerned about the growing negative impact of public policies on marriage, families, life, and religious liberty. FACT’s mission is to equip Tennesseans and their elected officials to effectively promote and defend a culture that values God’s design for the family, for the sake of the common good.
