Idaho moves closer to ban on transgender women in athletics
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho moved closer Wednesday to banning transgender women from competing in women’s sports despite warnings that such a law is unconstitutional.
A measure that overwhelmingly passed in the Republican-led state House of Representatives would apply to all sports teams sponsored by public schools, colleges and universities.
A girls’ or women’s team would not be open to a student who was born male, even if they identify as female.
It now goes to the GOP-dominated Senate.
Republican Gov. Brad Little’s spokeswoman said he had no comment on whether he would sign it into law.
