Student Privacy Protection and Safety Act of 2016 (H.R. 5294)
This law was last updated on Nov 6, 2018
H.R. 5294 would invalidate the Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students, dated May 13, 2016, that was issued by the Department of Justice and the Department of Education to provide guidance to schools receiving federal financial assistance about the treatment of transgender students under the prohibitions against sex discrimination in title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
The invalidation would apply until superseded by an Act of Congress that directs federal departments to issue guidance on transgender issues.
