(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is signing into law two bills banning transgender women from competing in women’s sports at both the K-through-12 and college levels. He said in a statement yesterday that House Bill 1249 “preserves athletics for girls and boys under traditional Title IX protections.” Burgum said that there have been no cases of a transgender woman trying to compete in sports in the last two years. The ban continues a trend across Republican-led states, where 20 have put into place similar restrictions on transgender women competing in sports.
