Idaho challenges transgender policies

Accusing the White House of “an incredible overreach,” Gov. Butch Otter’s staff attorney has urged a federal court to put the brakes on guidelines designed to protect transgender students’ rights. But in a 34-page legal brief, filed Friday, Otter attorney Cally Younger appears to greatly misstate the potential fiscal impact of the federal policies. Idaho filed its brief was filed in U.S. District Court in Wichita Falls, Texas, the focal point in the transgender student debate. It is here that Texas and several other states have filed a lawsuit seeking to block the controversial federal guidelines.
