Indiana lawmakers send sports ban for trans girls to governor
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers gave final approval on Tuesday to a Republican-backed bill that would bar transgender women and girls from participating in school sports that match their gender identity, saying sending to the Governor to decide whether it will become law.
The state Senate voted 32 to 18 largely along party lines in favor of the proposal, which opponents say is unconstitutional, sexist and bigoted. If Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb signs the bill, Indiana will join at least 10 other GOP-led states that have passed such bans.
