House Republicans propose transgender "bathroom bill"

DES MOINES - A group of Iowa House Republicans submitted a bill on Wednesday that with transgender Iowans and the access they have to bathrooms.

House File 2164, if passed, would allow businesses and schools to preserve the men's and women's bathrooms to their respective genders. Right now, the Iowa Civil Rights Act allows transgender Iowans to not be discriminated against based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. 

The bill has already received strong opposition from Democrats and transgender rights advocates. It is on the House Judiciary Committee's schedule, but so are dozens of other bills as well.
