Explanation

The amendment could result in a potential cost to municipalities who would have to reassign an elementary school teacher who changes gender identity or expression during a school year. If such teacher is reassigned to a non-teaching post, and the school has to hire either a long-term substitute or a new classroom teacher, additional costs could be incurred.
