Representative Tim Miller told a Christian radio talk show host that bathrooms are at the core of his bill to mandate anti-trans-inclusive policies in Minnesota's public schools.
Andy Birkey reports in MN Child Protection League: Trans-inclusive school policies hurt kids:
On Thursday, Michele Lentz of the Minnesota Child Protection League joined Rep. Tim Miller and AM 980 KKMS host Paul Ridgeway to talk about the bill.
Rep. Miller told Ridgeway that the bill was about bathroom use.
“You know the the fundamental question I ask people when they are discussing this bill, do we as a state, do we believe in there being boy bathrooms and girl bathrooms? And if we do then we need to do something about confirming that through the the laws that we have because right now that’s up for question after what the Minnesota State High School League did.”
He told Ridgeway that he had already discussed the bill with Gov. Mark Dayton. “I had a meeting with the governor on this subject and one of the things that he said was that frankly he doesn’t believe there’s that much support for what we are doing.”
