Boys have to compete as boys in Idaho
Gov. Little signs bill protecting female-designated sports
March 26, 2020
BOISE — Female athletes may not have to compete against so-called “transgender” women — in other words, biological males — in Idaho .
That’s because Gov. Brad Little signed House Bill 500, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, into law Monday, March 30.
The measure amends state law to prevent those athletes born as males from competing in female-designated sports.
The bill follows the Idaho Legislature’s finding of fact that, biologically, there are “inherent differences between men and women.”
The finding points out the science outlining the need for the measure.
