Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has said he agrees with Joe Biden's support of access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with gender identity for transgender students.

Biden has previously said that on his first day in office he will give transgender students at federally funded schools access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms matching the gender identity with which they identify. He also said he supported the Equality Act, which would force schools to allow biological males who identify as female to compete in women's sports.

Schumer said on Tuesday that he supported Biden's plan.

"I agree with the decision, and I know he'll check things out thoroughly legally," Schumer said.
