Governor Tate Reeves said a January executive order issued by President Joe Biden that protects transgender women and girls’ ability to compete on sports teams that conform with their gender identity left the state “no choice” but to enact the Mississippi Fairness Act.

“We will protect our young girls and ensure them a fair shot in public school sports. They should not be forced to compete against biological males,” Tate said on Facebook.
