Today, the U.S. Senate rejected an anti-trans amendment offered by Senators Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Roger Marshall (R-KS) during the Senate’s “vote-a-rama” debate on President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package that would deny federal funds in the bill to states and school districts that allow transgender girls to participate in girls’ sports from K-12 and college. This amendment would have undermined NCAA rules and state laws and policies that have been on the books for many years ensuring equal opportunity for transgender and cisgender athletes.
