- President Biden would veto legislation to bar transgender women and girls from competing on female sports teams if it reaches his desk, the White House warned Monday, denouncing House Republicans’ bill as “unnecessary” and discriminatory.
- “If the President were presented with H.R. 734, he would veto it,” the White House said Monday in a Statement of Administration Policy.
- The measure, known as the “Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act,” would amend Title IX, the federal civil rights law prohibiting sex-based discrimination in education, to recognize sex as that which is “based solely on a person’s reproductive biology and genetics at birth.”
