The committee released the bill following a public hearing on Wednesday. It is scheduled for a House vote Tuesday.
It also allows for enhanced penalties under Delaware’s hate crimes law for targeting someone based on his or her gender identity.

Opponents say the bill is not needed and will lead to disturbances by men in girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.
