Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on Tuesday signed a bill that prohibits transgender athletes from competing in sports at state universities and colleges that do not align with their biological sex.

The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Susan DuBose, R-Hoover, expands the current ban on transgender athletes participating on K-12 teams and in competitions that do not align with their biological sex. Ivey signed that legislation into law in 2021.

“Look, if you are a biological male, you are not going to be competing in women’s and girls’ sports in Alabama,” Ivey said in a news release. “It’s about fairness, plain and simple.” (Excerpt from NEWSMAX.)
