After its resurrection in the Tennessee General Assembly at the start of the 2018 session, the school “bathroom bill” has been dropped by its sponsor, House Rep. Gerald McCormick, the Times Free Press reports. McCormick said the bill is no longer necessary after he had assurances from state Attorney General Herbert Slatery that he can and will step in with legal aid for school systems facing lawsuits over LGBT access policies. A version of the bill first appeared in 2016, but did not pass.
