A Virginia lawmaker has filed a transgender bathroom bill similar to the controversial North Carolina law that garnered national scrutiny.

FOX's Gurnal Scott with more:

Virginia lawmakers aren't due back in session until next week, but Republican delegate Bob Marshall's legislation filed Tuesday, will be up for discussion when they return.

The bill generally would do as the North Carolina law did limit transgender bathroom use in government buildings to birth gender.

But it goes further than North Carolina by requiring school principals to notify parents within 24 hours if a student requests to be treated or recognized by name as the opposite sex.

LGBT advocates vow to fight the legislation. Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat says he would veto any such bill.
