Wisconsin Bills Banning Transgender Athletes Get Hearings


The public has a chance to tell Wisconsin state lawmakers how they feel about a pair of bills that would prohibit transgender athletes from participating in girl and women sports teams all the way from kindergarten through college.


The measures are up for public hearings today.


The Republican-authored bills are part of a nationwide movement targeting transgender people, particularly athletes.


The measures face almost certain vetoes by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers.


No one has registered in support of the measures.
