Alabama lawmakers vote to ban trans girls from female teams
A bill that would ban transgender girls from playing on female sports teams is on its way to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey's desk.
The Alabama Legislature passed a bill on Thursday that would prohibit K-12 schools from letting anyone who is a "biological male" to participate on a female team.
The governor has given no indication on whether or not she will sign the bill.
Over a dozen other states are considering similar legislation. Supporters of the bill say transgender girls have an unfair advantage in competition while opponents say such bills are discriminatory.
