Louisiana lawmakers fail to override veto on transgender sports ban
Louisiana lawmakers failed to override Gov. John Bel Edwards’s (D) veto of legislation that would have banned transgender athletes from competing on school sports teams.
Edwards vetoed Senate Bill 156 last month, which would have required athletic teams to allow athletes based on “biological sex.”
In vetoing the bill, Edwards said “discrimination is not a Louisiana value, and this bill was a solution in search of a problem that simply does not exist in Louisiana.”
