How you can be heard before special session to override veto of HB11
SALT LAKE CITY – State Sen. Derek Kitchen put out a request for public input ahead of Friday’s special session and veto override session of HB 11.
The bill would have banned high school transgender girls from competing in girls’ sports. Gov. Spencer Cox vetoed the bill earlier this week because it had “several fundamental flaws” and was “substantially changed in the final hours of the legislative session.”
“There was no public input and this lack of time and input has serious legal and financial implications as well,” Cox said.
House and Senate leaders called a special session to “consider financial and legal issues” related to the bill.

In a call for public input, Kitchen said, “Seeing as community organizations and the public were uninvolved and removed from the legislative process to call for reconsideration on H.B. 11, I am urgently pleading for public feedback ahead of tomorrow’s session.”
