NC House members file bill on transgender students in sports
Several North Carolina Republican legislators have filed a bill that would block transgender women and girls from joining women’s high school and college athletic teams, joining the culture-war tussle that has swept several states.
Their bill, which would apply to middle and high schools and colleges -- both public and private -- comes as legislators in nearly 30 other states have proposed similar prohibitions. Bills in Idaho and Mississippi have become law, while others are being debated in several more state legislatures.
