An Oklahoma bill that relates to transgender students cleared its first hurdle on Friday.

Republican lawmakers introduced Senate Bill 1619 on Thursday.

The bill, introduced by Senate leader Brian Bingman, seeks to provide a religious accommodation for students who do not wish to use a bathroom, locker room or shower with other students whose sex at birth does not match their own.

The school district cannot provide the student making the request with a single-occupancy facility.

According to the AP, the bill cleared the Oklahoma Senate Joint Committee on Appropriations and Budget with a vote of 20-15.

The bill is a response to guidelines issued last week by the Obama administration advising schools that receive federal funding to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice.

Republicans also introduced a resolution calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Barack Obama for issuing the directive.
