ACLU warns they will sue after TN Governor signs bill requiring transgender athletes to compete based on biological sex

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has signed a bill requiring transgender athletes to only compete in the division of their biological sex.

Tennessee is now the 3rd state to implement a law of this nature, following Mississippi and Arkansas.

Gov. Lee tweeted “I signed the bill to preserve women’s athletics and ensure fair competition. This legislation responds to damaging federal policies that stand in opposition to the years of progress made under Title IX and I commend members of the General Assembly for their bipartisan work.

The ACLU immediately took issue with the new bill, tweeting “BREAKING: Tennessee Governor Lee just signed a bill banning trans kids from playing sports.

“We’ll see them in court,” they added.
