Boozman Statement on Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Directive

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s directive on transgender access to bathrooms in public schools:

“This is a shameful overreach by President Obama to push his beliefs on Arkansans and all Americans. Threatening our schools with lawsuits or the loss of federal funding for failing to comply with this directive is the latest power grab by this Administration. I reject this attempt by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education to control our schools from Washington, and support Governor Hutchinson’s call for Arkansas school districts to ignore the blatant abuse of power by the President.”
