Governor Holcomb today vetoed HB 1041, a bill that would have banned trans girls from playing school sports with their peers. 

Katie Blair, ACLU of Indiana Advocacy and Public Policy Director:

"This victory belongs to the trans youth of Indiana, who deserve to live as their authentic selves and to play the sports they love, free from discrimination. This win wouldn’t have been possible without the thousands of Hoosiers who voiced their strong opposition to state legislators and who showed up at the Statehouse to oppose this harmful bill. Discrimination has no place in our state."
