FILE - In this Oct. 14, 2015 file photo, State Rep. John Ragan, R-Oak Ridge, attends a Senate Higher Education Subcommittee hearing in Nashville, Tenn. Ragan wants the state's public indecency law to apply to bathrooms and changing rooms — a move that critics argue is designed to restrict the facilities that transgender people can use. The bill, which was approved by a House subcommittee Wednesday, March 13, 2019, is still in the early stages of making its way through the GOP-dominant General Assembly.
