Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers Vows to Veto Anti-Trans Legislation

Author: Trudy Ring

Wisconsin Democratic Gov. Tony Evers promised again this week to veto any anti-transgender bill that legislators pass.

The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association, which regulates high school sports, has stated its opposition to restrictions on trans girls, noting that it already has a policy requiring trans girls to have had testosterone suppression treatment for a year before they can compete on girls’ teams. The association has “received no complaints, only a small number of concerns” about the policy, spokesman Todd Clark told The Cap Times via email.

“While the WIAA staff and the member schools encourage thoughtful and open dialogue on how to improve policies, we do not support a legislative end-run around membership processes,” Clark wrote.

Twenty-three states restrict trans athletes’ participation in school sports, and 21 ban all or most gender-affirming care for trans youth, according to the Movement Advancement Project.
