“As of Wednesday, 71 representatives have signed the petition in support of the motion.”
Democrats will oppose this after accusing Republicans of waging a war on women. Just watch.

Republican lawmakers are working to advance the ‘Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act’
The United States House of Representatives may soon vote on a bill that would protect female athletes from competing against men.
A discharge would allow for the bill to be moved from committee to the House floor for consideration.
Republican Study Committee Chairman and U.S Representative Jim Banks (R- IN) and bill sponsor Representative Greg Steube (R-FL) are leading the fight to advance the bill.
The bill would require 218 members of Congress to sign on approval for it to be advanced.
“By refusing to allow a vote on protecting women’s sports, Speaker Pelosi is enabling Congress to evade this critical and timely issue facing students across the country. Tonight, Republicans filed a discharge petition to force my bill, The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act onto the House floor,” Steube said in a press release following the Apr. 26 petition.
He continued, “Instead of paying lip service to women, I hope my colleagues across the aisle will actually do something for women and girls by signing onto this petition. As the left perpetuates a craze to eliminate gender, the American people deserve to know where their elected representatives stand on protecting women’s sports.”
As of Wednesday, 71 representatives have signed the petition in support of the motion. In addition to Banks and Steube, the earliest signatories were Glenn Thompson (R-PA), August Pfluger (R- TX), Vicky Hartzler (R- MO), Mary E. Miller (R- IL), Lauren Boebert (R- CO), and Kat Cammack (R- FL) are named on the file.
Steube introduced the bill on Jan. 21 last year in an effort to take national action to reinforce Title IX protections for women’s opportunities.
