MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Tuesday afternoon, May 30, Gov. Kay Ivey took another significant step to safeguard women’s sports in Alabama by signing House Bill 261 into law.

This new legislation restricts transgender students from participating in sports based on their biological sex, exclusively in public colleges and universities.

In an effort to protect the integrity of collegiate sports in Alabama, Gov. Ivey emphasized the importance of fairness.

“Look, if you are a biological male, you are not going to be competing in women’s and girls’ sports in Alabama,” said Gov. Ivey. “It’s about fairness, plain and simple.”

This action follows Gov. Ivey’s previous enactment in 2021, which prohibited biological boys from participating in K-12 girls’ sports. Alabama remains steadfast in its commitment to preserving the rights of female athletes at all levels and ensuring the competitive integrity of athletics at all levels.
