In April 2016, Slatery argued that an anti-transgender discrimination bill would cost the state of Tennessee millions in federal funding. However, in May 2016, he said Tennessee would cover the legal costs incurred by lawsuits should specific schools in the state choose not to follow federal non-discrimination policies towards transgender students. He also decided to sue the United States Department of Education over the policy.

Although in June 2017, he originally joined with the Republican Attorneys General from nine other states, plus Idaho Governor Butch Otter, in threatening the Donald J. Trump administration that they would litigate if the president did not terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that had been put into place by president Barack Obama, Slatery reversed his position and withdrew his support of the proposed suit on August 31st. He went further to urge passage of the DREAM Act.
