NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT)  The Tennessee culture wars are about to heat up with the introduction this week of two controversial bills by State Senator Mae Beavers.

Beavers yesterday introduced a bill (SB0771) that would require public school students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match the sex recorded on their birth certificates.

The other measure is entitled the “Tennessee Natural Marriage Defense Act” (SB0752) and states the “policy of Tennessee to defend natural marriage between one man and one woman regardless of any court decision to the contrary.”
