The new laws would make it easier for adults to request information about their sexual partners, and could also make it harder for minors to share intimate photos and videos without a parent’s permission.
The bills are expected to be signed into law by the governor next week.
The measures also would require people to disclose to police the sexual orientation of anyone they have sex with, and require people in same-sex relationships to undergo counseling to learn more about the identities of their partners.
Supporters say the measures are needed to combat the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, but opponents say they could allow discrimination and stigmatize LGBTQ people.
In a statement Monday, the governor said the legislation would help “protect children from predators who prey on the most vulnerable.”
But the bill has drawn criticism from lawmakers and advocacy groups, and the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia, which has sued to block the law, has asked the court to strike down the law as unconstitutional.
Advocates for the LGBT community also have warned that the law could hurt businesses and people who are vulnerable because of their sexual orientation.
Many states already have similar measures.
Earlier this month, the federal government announced it would review its policies on protecting LGBT people from discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bars discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the law in favor of protecting LGBT individuals.
A federal appeals court in Seattle on Monday declined to hear an appeal by the ACLU, saying that the federal Government has the authority to define protected classes.
A similar case is before the U,S.
Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in San Francisco.
In that case, the Obama administration is seeking to require employers to provide an inclusive workplace for employees and students who are transgender or gender nonconforming.
The U. S. Department of Justice has also launched a legal challenge to the law.
The government’s brief, filed Monday, argues that the measure would not help protect the LGBT population because it would not apply to those who are not transgender.
It also argues that requiring people to identify themselves in the workplace could create a false sense of security and could put vulnerable people at risk.
The federal government has argued that the measures would not be an intrusion on people’s privacy.
The administration also argues the measure is needed to counter the growing and growing use of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat.
Those companies have faced increasing scrutiny from civil rights advocates and law enforcement after the 2015 police shooting of Laquan McDonald, who was shot and killed in a Chicago McDonald’s parking lot by a Chicago police officer.
A video from the McDonald’s video-chat app captured the moments before McDonald was killed.
The police officer was cleared of any wrongdoing.
He was placed on administrative leave after an internal investigation and his case was subsequently dropped.
The Justice Department has argued the use of these social media platforms by police is an important tool in combating violent crime and drug trafficking.
The White House, which previously defended the laws, said Monday that President Donald Trump believes the laws would not impact the LGBT communities and that the new laws will not affect those who use them.
The president also said in a tweet that he has spoken to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and urged him to take the necessary steps to enforce the new law.
