Bill banning KY transgender women from competing in public school, university women's sports clears committee

Feb 16, 2022

A bill banning transgender girls and women from competing on female teams in Kentucky's public middle and high schools and postsecondary institutions cleared the House Education Committee on Tuesday.
House Bill 23, sponsored by Rep. Ryan Dotson, passed the panel on a 13-6 vote. One Republican joined Democrats on the committee in opposition.

The legislation directs the Kentucky High School Athletic Association and public postsecondary institutions to enact policies closing participation in women's sports to those born male at birth. The measure does not cover sports in kindergarten through fifth grade.
