Republican lawmakers in Kansas have failed to enact legislation that would have banned transgender athletes from participating in girls’ and women’s sports. Monday’s 26-14 vote by the Kansas state Senate was one vote shy of the two-thirds majority needed to override Democratic Governor Laura Kelly’s veto. Similar anti-trans bills have recently become law in Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, Tennessee and West Virginia.
