BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - One Louisiana leader is challenging President Obama's mandate on transgender bathrooms.

The president said public schools must allow bathroom access to transgender students.
Landry argued that the president's threat to stop funding jeopardizes student safety in a letter to the leaders of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, Board of Regents, Louisiana High School Athletic Association, Louisiana School Boards Association, Louisiana Community and Technical College System Board, and Office of Juvenile Justice.
