Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) – Travels between John Lagan, eastern Tennessee, and Glenn Funk, Nashville District Attorney.
The two are arguing over DA Funk’s refusal to enforce the controversial transgender bathroom sign law.
Funk appeared via Zoom on Saturday morning in a conversation with Deputy Mayor Jim Schulman of Nashville on various issues related to the Capitol.
Some of the issues raised included the discretion of the prosecution. This emerged for the reason behind DA’s decision not to enforce the controversial bathroom sign law.
“This is one of the core principles. It’s built into our constitution and we don’t necessarily think we need the discretion to make decisions based on what the state legislature thinks is important to our community. There were some problems, “says Funk.
The Toilet Law requires businesses that allow the use of toilets regardless of gender to post a specific sign that informs the public.
In support of the original statement on News 2, Congressman John Lagan said in response to News 2’s request for comment: Court of jurisdiction without delay. “
Violations of this law are misdemeanors, but enforcement remains a problem outside of Nashville.
“All prosecutors, all district attorneys across the country, have the discretion to prosecute a case and not to prosecute a case where the resources of their office apply.
The Bathroom Sign Act will come into effect on July 1.
