Texas Senate backs bill that could disqualify transgender student athletes

Published on May 9, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Editor’s note: This story has been updated throughout. The Texas Senate on Tuesday gave initial approval to a measure that could keep transgender athletes from competing in high school sports. Senate Bill 2095 by Republican state Sen. Bob Hall would give the University Interscholastic League, the governing body for high school sports, the authority to deem athletes ineligible if UIL officials determine that steroid use under a doctor’s care affects safety or fairness of play.Via Texas Tribune
