A California bill that would require school employees to out transgender students to their parents will not get a committee hearing, meaning the legislation is effectively dead. Assembly Bill AB 1314, by Assemblyman Bill Essayli, R-Riverside, was assigned to the Assembly Education Committee, which is chaired by Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, D-Torrance. On Monday, Muratsuchi announced that he is holding the bill without a hearing. He said that students deserve to be loved and supported for who they are, including when attending school, and that the gender identity conversation is one that should take place between parents and their children in a safe, private space.
