OK House committee passes bill targeting transgender girls

The Associated Press - March 5, 2022 7:52 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A bill that would prevent transgender girls from playing on female sports teams at Oklahoma schools has passed a state House committee.

The House Rules Committee passed the bill Thursday on a 6-2 party-line vote with Republicans in support. The measure now heads to the full House for consideration.

Passage of the bill was immediately criticized by civil libertarians and the gay rights group Freedom Oklahoma.

The measure is one of several bills being considered by the Republican-led Legislature this year that targets transgender or gay young people.
