Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, announced in an interview late last week that he would sign a bill banning biological males from competing in girls’ sports.
DeSantis made the announcement during a town hall event with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“Governor DeSantis, a bill of a similar nature is about to cross your desk,” Ingraham said. “Are you going to sign it?”
“Oh, yes. We’re going to protect our girls,” DeSantis said.
“I have a four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old daughter, and they’re very athletic. And we want to have opportunities for our girls. They deserve an even playing field.”
“And that’s what we’re doing, with what Mississippi did, with what Florida did, and I know what other states are going to do. So, I look forward to being able to sign that into law.”
