(THE HILL) A small Alabama city has passed an ordinance making it illegal for transgender people to use public restrooms that don't correspond to the biological sex listed on their birth certificate.
Oxford Council President Steven Waits said the ordinance, passed Tuesday, is in response to Target's new restroom policy, according to The Associated Press.
The retail giant announced last week that it will allow transgender people to use its restrooms corresponding to the gender with which they identify. Target has one store in Oxford.
