House of Representatives Passes Bill to Bar Transgender Athletes from Competing in Women’s Sports Events

The House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that would bar schools receiving federal money from allowing transgender athletes whose biological sex assigned at birth was male to compete on girls or women's sports teams or athletic events. Supporters of the bill say it is necessary to ensure competitive fairness, while the White House has said President Joe Biden would veto the measure if it were to make it to his desk. The bill now moves to the Senate, where it is expected to face an uphill battle.
