Proposed Law Would Ban Transgender Athletes in Public School

On Wednesday a bill was approved by an Alabama Senate Committee that would ban transgender athletes from participating in school sports.

The bill, proposed by Republican Representative Scott Stadthegan of Hartselle would make it illegal for public schools in Alabama to participate in, sponsor, or provide staff for athletic events where transgender athletes are allowed to compete against athletes of a different biological gender.
