A new Tennessee bill would prevent transgender females from competing in biological female sports.

What are the details?

According to The Tennessee Star, HB 1572 would require students at elementary and secondary schools to compete in sports based on their biological sex.

State Rep. Bruce Griffey (R) submitted the bill, which would force schools to comply with such gender segregation and would pose fines up to $10,000 for non-compliance with the bill, if passed. The measure points out that violations of such a policy would also result in schools losing public funding sources.
