A Texas Senate committee has voted unanimously to advance a pair of bills aimed at preventing males from competing in girls’ sports.
Senate Bills 2 and 32, were passed out of the Health and Human Services Committee by a vote of 6-0.
According to the Hill:
Senate Bill 2 prevents public schools and higher education institutions from allowing a student to compete in a sport that is ‘designated for the biological sex opposite to the student ’s biological sex’ as stated on their birth certificate or other government record, according to its text.
Senate Bill 32 would institute a similar ban, but it only applies to public schools.
