Bathroom bill retreat, but not total surrender

Posted By on Thu, Mar 2, 2017 at 4:55 PM

The Associated Press' Andrew DeMillo says Sen. Greg Standridge intends to drop a broad bathroom bill to prohibit public restroom use except by people with matching birth gender.

But he says he still has something in mind on school facilities.

Big deal.. It will still be legally dubious. Still unnecessary for a non-existent problem. Still will be a black eye for Arkansas. I hope Gov. Asa Hutchinson will continue to say so.

From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
