The bill would require people to use restrooms that correspond with the gender on their birth certificate, not the gender with which they identify. The bill is similar to one enacted last year in North Carolina. That law prompted economic boycotts and the loss of sporting events that were estimated to have cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars.
