Idaho Bill Would Ban Transgender Women Athletes In Schools
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho lawmaker wants to ban transgender women athletes from participating in sports that align with their gender identity.
Boise State Public Radio reports that the bill by Idaho Falls Republican Rep. Barbara Ehardt was introduced Wednesday in the House Education Committee. It could add significant complications for state colleges and universities that are members of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
The NCAA requires its members to allow transgender athletes to participate in sports that align with their gender identity. Ehardt said transgender athletes are acting as a “roadblock” to girls and women who want to play sports with their peers.
