New Proposed Bill Targets Transgender People

Indiana State Senator Jim Tomes has proposed a bill that aims to target transgender people. This bill would charge transgender people with a misdemeanor, a year in jail and a $5,000 fine for using a public restroom or locker room that doesn’t conform with their gender at birth. According to Tomes his reasoning for the bill is that he is worried about the privacy of women and children in bathrooms.
