In Louisiana, the House of Representatives has voted to sustain a bill that would ban trans athletes from participating in sports consistent with their gender identity.

A Republican Louisiana House majority fell short of two votes to overturn Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards’ veto of anti-trans regulation.

The Bill, SB 156, would prevent trans women and girls from participating in women’s sports. The Louisiana House vote concluded at 68-30, with Republicans falling short of the 70 votes they needed to achieve a first-ever veto-override.
