FL: DeSantis signs bill banning girls from girls’ sports

Source: Aol

“Florida on Tuesday became the latest and by far the largest state to ban transgender women and girls from participating in school sports, part of a campaign in statehouses nationwide this year that equal rights activists assail as discriminatory. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, who is closely aligned with former President Donald Trump, signed the bill into law after it had been rushed through the state legislature as an attachment to a charter school bill. … Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Montana, Tennessee and West Virginia have passed similar legislation and South Dakota’s governor has signed an executive order supporting a sports ban. All have Republican governors.” (06/01/21)
