Statement from House Republican Leader Jeff Hoover on Kentucky Lawsuit Regarding Transgender Bathrooms

House Republican Leader Jeff Hoover

FRANKFORT, Ky. – “I commend Governor Bevin for joining in the important lawsuit against the federal government over new guidelines on how schools should accommodate transgender students.

As I said previously, I firmly believe the Obama Administration has exceeded its authority on the issue of access to public school bathrooms. Unfortunately, this is the not the first time President Obama has attempted to force his liberal agenda on the citizens of the Commonwealth.  This is an issue that should be decided by local officials and not by politicians in Washington.

It is a shame that Andy Beshear did not show leadership on this effort.  It is obvious that the numerous controversies involving the Attorney General’s office are distracting him from one of the most important facets of his job, to represent the Commonwealth. It is imperative that he put away his animosity toward Governor Bevin and his administration and attend to his constitutional duties.”
