September 22, 2021

A Texas bill to require transgender student-athletes to compete only in sports that correspond with the sex listed on their birth certificate passed in the Texas Senate by a 19-12 vote. The bill now heads to the House. Senate Bill 3 does make one exception: allowing biological girls to play on a boys sports team if there isn’t a girls team for that sport and the University Interscholastic League (UIL) allows it.
