GOP-led Pennsylvania legislature passes transgender sports ban bill despite veto threat

Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers passed a bill to ban biological males from female sports in K-12th grades and in college despite the threat of a veto from the governor in the state where University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas has brought the issue to the forefront of national discussion.

HB 972, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, passed 115-84 in the state House. A similar version is currently pending in the state’s Senate.

Pennsylvania Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has threatened to veto the bill if it reaches his desk.

“As states across the country push transphobic legislation, some Republicans in the General Assembly are wasting time attempting the same in Pennsylvania,” Wolf tweeted.

“It won’t get past my desk,” he added. “Let’s enhance protections for LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians instead. Send me the bipartisan Fairness Act.”

The contrast between the governor and GOP leaders shows a clear difference in views on a key issue related to women’s sports.

All they need to do is make a new category for trans people but that would make too much sense I guess. It is unfair to have trans compete with women. Personally I am against the whole idea of trans in the first place but if they are going to do it then make a new category for competition.
