Pennsylvania bill would ban transgender athletes from playing women's sports, but Gov. Wolf vows to veto it

The “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” would prevent transgender women and girls from joining female sports teams at Pennsylvania public schools and colleges. The legislation passed out of the House Education Committee, but Gov. Tom Wolf has vowed to veto it. The vote came after Penn swimmer Lia Thomas became the first transgender athlete to win a Division I national championship.
