To truly fight, Gov. Kristi Noem should have signed the bill and demanded her state legislature pass more, such as a ban on the transgender mutilation of minors.
‘What we’re talking about is an unconstitutional use of this veto,’ Rep. Taffy Howard said, noting that the governor made ‘substantial changes’ to the bill.
Gov. Kristi Noem issued a ‘style and form’ veto on a transgender sports bill. The South Dakota legislation voted to reject her edits.
While Gov. Kristi Noem understandably prefers to avoid facing the economic brunt of a showdown with the NCAA, if she led, others would follow. That is what conservatives want.
Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed a new law Thursday that prohibits biological males from competing in female sports.
“This whole thing is ultimately a cover for vetoing on behalf of Amazon and the Chamber,” Jon Schweppe explained on The Federalist Radio Hour.
Noem’s team refused to tell The Federalist which “renowned conservative legal experts” advised her against signing a bill that would prevent biological males from competing in girl’s sports.
It’s been shocking to see a Republican governor with a paid advisor who also lobbies for a child-mutilating hospital try to cast her refusal to sign a female-protection bill as principled and pragmatic.
Instead of coming to terms with the fact that Noem’s conservative base is furious, the governor’s office maintains their voter base is just simply “uninformed.”
A look behind the curtain reveals a network of big business with wide influence in Noem’s office opposing the transgender sports bill.
It appears Gov. Kristi Noem is hoping to use the goodwill she earned through her COVID courage to hide her cowardly and deceptive choices about transgender politics. Recent history shows this goes badly.
On Fox News Monday night, South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem gave a performative defense on her decision to essentially veto a trans sports bill at the behest of big corporate.
Given the reality of the NCAA’s policy, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s proffered explanation for excluding women collegiate athletes from the protections of H.B. 1217 is beyond misleading.
Author Abigail Shrier testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday about the dangers of the Equality Act, explaining that the bill hinders equality instead of reinforcing it.
While Democrats present the Equality Act as legislation designed to protect LGTBQ people from discrimination, if passed the law would prove devasting to girls and women.
‘People are scared to say anything. It’s deemed bullying,’ a female cyclist said. ‘They can tell you you can’t race. They can kick you out of a race. I could have my license taken away.’
“I would just say that the president’s belief is that trans rights are human rights, and that’s why he signed that executive order,” Psaki said.
The bill, introduced by Montana state Rep. John Fuller, protects women’s sports by barring biological men from competing in women’s leagues.
This executive order combined with Supreme Court precedent amounts to imposing a national sexual orientation and gender identity law on the entire country.
One day after Biden issued an executive order mandating that federally funded educational institutions must function as if biological males who claim to be females are the same, and vice versa, “#BidenErasedWomen” began trending on Twitter.
