. Utah governor says he will veto bill that would ban transgender girls from girls sports « JO LEE MAGAZINE

USA TODAY/Utah Gov. Spencer Cox said he plans to veto legislation passed Friday that would ban transgender student-athletes from competing in girls sports.

With the governor’s pledge to veto the bill, Utah is poised to become the first state this year to reject an anti-trans sports bill approved by its legislature.

Without Cox’s support, the state is unlikely to join the 11 others that have recently enacted bans on transgender girls competing on school sports teams corresponding with their gender identity.
