Last week, a bill allowing “X” to appear on the driver’s licenses of anyone who doesn’t identify as male or female became law without the signature of Gov. Chris Sununu, prompting relief from LGBT advocates and some pushback from conservative circles.

Now, the governor is facing decisions on two new gender identity bills.

A batch of bills sent over by the Senate president in recent weeks includes a sweeping proposal to add new anti-discrimination laws to schools that cover gender identity. A separate bill would amend and broaden the procedure to change one’s gender on a state birth certificate.
