Indiana Gov. Eric Hallcombe vetoed a bill Monday banning male-born athletes from K-12 female sports.
In a letter to the state House of Representatives, Holcomb said he found no evidence that anyone was being treated unfairly, adding that the bill failed to clarify a policy to justify K-12 sports in Indiana.
“Any bill that should be brought forward should address the issues raised in these cases,” Holcombe wrote.
“Ultimately, the policy is speculative [the legislation] There is an existing problem with K-12 sports in Indiana that requires more state government intervention, ”he continued. “This means that the goals of consistency and fairness in competitive women’s sports are not currently being met. After a thorough review, I support the overall goal but find no evidence to support both claims.”
The bill passed the House 66-30 and the Senate 32-18.
