SR 1798 is a resolution responding to the executive and legislative branches of the federal government regarding the May 2016 federal directive on transgender students in schools that receive federal funding.

The Senate Resolution states that the Kansas State Senate supports the right of states and local school boards, not the federal government, to direct education policy.

The resolution strongly encourages the United States Congress to curtail the Obama Administration Title IX guidance by using every legislative tool in their power, including:

  • passing legislation to protect students’ privacy rights;
  • reassuring states, schools and other educational institutions that they will not lose federal education funding by disregarding the Obama Administration Title IX guidance;
  • withholding funding for the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education that would otherwise be used to implement the Obama Administration Title IX guidance so as to ensure agency enforcement of the law is based on the clear statutory text as passed by Congress and signed into law; and
  • holding hearings to investigate the process by which the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education developed the Obama Administration Title IX guidance and holding those responsible for the decision accountable for their overreach.
