UPDATE: House Bill 1298 has been sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Right no, we are awaiting the official hearing date and time. Keep writing/calling your lawmakers to ask they oppose this policy.
House Bill 1298 would ban transgender athletes under the age of 18 from competing on the sports teams that match their gender identity.
Currently, transgender athletes wishing to compete on school-sponsored teams may do so. The North Dakota High School Activities Association already has a policy in place for transgender athletes. House Bill 1298 is an effort to codify discrimination against transgender students under state law and undermines the authority of the NDHSAA to ensure equitable and fair participation in school activities.
