Montana Advances Bill Targeting Transgender Kids
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A GOP-backed bill in Montana that would ban Transgender kids from playing on school sports teams for the gender with which they identify has advanced.
It’s one of more than a dozen states where lawmakers are proposing restrictions on athletics or gender-confirming health care for trans minors this year.
The proposals run counter to an executive order signed by Democratic President Joe Biden during his first day in office prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity in school sports and elsewhere.
