The Sunflower State has made strides to preserve fairness in women’s sports. On Wednesday, Kansas state senators voted to pass a bill that could restrict public schools from allowing biological males to compete in women’s athletics.

The move came after the Biden administration signed an executive order allowing trans-athletes to compete in sports with their “preferred gender.” While speaking in an interview Wednesday, Republican state Sen. Molly Baumgardner (R) weighed-in on the issue.

“What we heard in testimony is that there are parents and there are student athletes that want to compete against folks that have that same physical makeup,” explained the Republican lawmaker.

The bill will now head to the Republican-controlled House for a vote.
