Rep. Buddy Carter opposing Federal bathroom directive

ATLANTA, Ga. – Congressman Buddy Carter is opposing the President’s threat to take legal action or deny Federal funds to school districts that don’t allow students to use bathrooms regardless of gender.

Rep. Carter and 38 other members of Congress expressed their concerns with the policy in a letter.

You can read that letter here.

The Delegation wrote, “To date, neither statute nor legal precedent has extended civil rights protections based on gender identity. Furthermore your actions threaten to infringe on the constitutional right of Congress to appropriate funds. We view this as an effort to implement your Administration’s political agenda outside the bounds of the law and against the will of the American people. We insist that you withdraw this legally unfounded threat immediately.”
