Wednesday’s outcome was a blow to Republicans who took historic measures to countermand the governor’s decision on the matter. Rallying around the transgender legislation last week, the state’s GOPcalled a special veto sessionfor the first time in decades.

The strategy was “democracy in action,” Louisiana GOP House Speaker Clay Schexnayder said Friday. On Monday, he boasted that he was “comfortable 100%” that his party would overturn the veto, which requires a two-thirds majority in both the state House and Senate. headtopics.com

But despite success in the Senate on Wednesday, Republicans fell two votes short in the House. Though one Democrat joined their ranks, a GOP lawmaker and an independent opposed the veto override.Some of the most impassioned remarks Wednesday against the bill came from Rep.

The bill will just accelerate the purging of women from school women's sports and replace them with trans women with the physique of men. Soon there will be women's sports without natural women.

thanks

Louisiana GOP Fails To Override Veto On Anti-Trans Sports Bill“This bill will not protect our girls,” a Democrat opposed to the legislation argued. Misogynistic man voted against women’s rights. And this magazine is promoting this hate to women. R they ever going to use plain language so its easy to know what the issue is? Course not. Women are upset about cocks and balls in our spaces. Is that plain enough for you? Why are men challenging women who say no to men where they aren't supposed to be and how is that progress? Men who want to allow other men to have access to female spaces, categories, services, etc, don't care about protecting girls. We know this already, people. It's ultimately pointless to pretend we're don't. And in the meantime, girls and women are getting hurt.

Louisiana legislature 2 votes short in effort to overturn transgender sports ban vetoDemocrats were unswayed by Republican arguments, leaving them short of the supermajority vote required to bypass the governor. Corporate political influence spending is considered to be free speech.

Congress needs to act & end all efforts to suppress the voter's voice.
