White House threatens to veto GOP bill that would ban transgender women from sports:
The White House on Monday threatened to veto a House Republican bill that would bar transgender women and girls nationwide from competing in female sports.
In a statement, the White House Office of Management and Budget said the measure is a “one-size-fits-all requirement that forces coaches to remove kids from their teams.”
“A national law that further stigmatizes these children is completely unnecessary and hurts families and students at greater risk,” the statement said. “Discrimination has no place in our nation’s schools or on our playing fields.”
The White House said Republicans should be focused on school shootings, raising teachers’ pay and addressing student mental health issues instead of “policies that discriminate against children.”
House Bill 734, also known as the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, would modify Title IX by requiring schools to recognize athletes based solely on a person’s gender at birth. The bill is expected to come up for a House vote this week.
Rep. Greg Steube, Florida Republican, introduced the measure in February and it has 68 cosponsors, all Republicans. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden to veto GOP bill protecting women's sports, calls it 'discrimination' against transgender students:
The White House vowed Monday that President Biden will veto a bill that would prevent biological males from participating in women's sports should it pass both houses fo Congress.
The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, or H.R. 734, was introduced by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., and is expected to come to a vote on the House floor sometime this week.
"The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 734," the White House said in a statement. "For students nationwide, participating in sports and being part of a team is an important part of growing up, staying engaged in school, and learning leadership and life skills. H.R. 734 would deny access to sports for many families by establishing an absolute ban on transgender students—even those as young as elementary schoolers—playing on a team consistent with their gender identity."
"Schools, coaches, and athletic associations around the country are already working with families to develop participation rules that are fair and that take into account particular sports, grade levels, and levels of competition. As a national ban that does not account for competitiveness or grade level, H.R. 734 targets people for who they are and therefore is discriminatory," it said.
The statement accused politicians of dictating a "one-size-fits-all requirement that forces coaches to remove kids from their teams," and argued transgender youth across the country were already facing a mental health crisis.
It claimed such a law was "unnecessary," and that it "hurts families and students." --->READ MORE HERE
