AP Tuesday April 12, 2016

Tennessee's attorney general says a transgender bathroom bill that is moving through the state Legislature could cost the state federal education funding.
Democratic lawmakers opposed to the bill said Monday that Attorney General Herbert Slatery's opinion should be the final "nail in the coffin" to a controversial piece of legislation that is getting a backlash from the business community.
The bill would require students in public grade schools and universities to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their sex at birth. A number of businesses have come out against the measure.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has previously raised concerns that the state could lose federal funds if the bill passed.
