‘This is the law’ | Youngkin tells schools they should comply with new transgender policy

On Monday, the 30-day public comment period started on Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s new proposed school policy that impacts transgender and nonbinary students.

Right now, many school districts allow students to choose which pronouns they use, which bathrooms and locker rooms they use and which sports they play based on their gender identity — not biological sex — without parental permission.

Gov. Youngkin’s proposed policy would change that.

Ahead of his visit to Stafford County, Va. where he donated his third-quarter salary on Monday, 7News Reporter Nick Minock spoke with Gov. Youngkin about his new proposed policy on transgender students and their ability to choose which pronouns they use, which bathrooms and locker rooms they use and which sports they play.
