Eric Holcomb is facing criticism from fellow Republicans and calls for an override of his veto on legislation banning transgender females from competing in girls school sports, a decision that put him at odds with a conservative cause that has led to similar state laws across the country.

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox on Tuesday, March 22, vetoed a similar ban approved by that state’s Legislature after he had been working to broker a compromise between LGBTQ advocates and social conservatives.
