Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Indiana’s governor is facing criticism from fellow Republicans for his veto on legislation banning transgender females from competing in girls’ school sports. Holcomb signaled support for the bill last month but said in his veto letter that the legislation falls short of providing a consistent statewide policy for fairness in K-12 sports. Republican Indiana House Speaker Todd Huston said GOP lawmakers will vote to override Holcomb’s veto on May 24th and put the ban into law.
