PHOENIX (AP) — Lawmakers are delaying a debate over equal access rights after dozens of transgender people flooded the Arizona House of Representatives to fight a proposed law that would have made it illegal for them to use the bathroom of their preferred gender.
Republican Rep. John Kavanagh said Wednesday he would delay his bill that seeks to make it a misdemeanor for anyone to use a public facility not associated with their birth gender. Kavanagh's announcement came during the beginning of a House committee meeting filled with dozens of transgender advocates.
Critics of the measure say it would be the toughest standard in the nation for transgender people. It would require people to use public bathrooms of the sex listed on their birth certificate or face six months in jail.
