On Wednesday, the Kansas legislature overrode Governor Laura Kelly’s veto of HB 2238, which prohibits biological males from competing in female athletics at the K-12 and collegiate levels. Kansas is now the 20th state to pass a law protecting women’s sports.

In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement applauding the vote:

“Common sense has finally prevailed in Kansas. One would think it would be uncontroversial to limit girls’ sports to girls, and, indeed, numerous polls have shown most Americans agree. Yet, Gov. Kelly has repeatedly vetoed this legislation, showing she cares more about placating her party’s far-left activist base than safeguarding her state’s female athletes.

“Fortunately, Kansas legislators are not so craven. We applaud the state House and Senate for voting this measure into law despite the governor’s absurd opposition, and we hope this move will spur even more states, and eventually Congress, to take action as well.”
