“The people of Louisiana elected our legislature to solve real, critical issues facing everyday Louisianans. It’s baffling that they would instead choose to spend their time and an extraordinary amount of taxpayer dollars attempting to further discrimination against transgender children,” said Dylan Waguespack, president of Louisiana Trans Advocates. “Rather than overriding the governor’s veto of SB 156 to solve a problem that does not exist, the legislature should do something to address the very real epidemic of violence and harassment trans kids face in Louisana K-12 schools.”
