GOP Leader Takes Aim At Minnesota State High School League
ST. PAUL (AP) — A top Republican is calling for more scrutiny of the Minnesota State High School League.
That follows the league's approval last week of a policy to let transgender athletes play on the sports teams that best align with their gender identity.
State Rep. Joyce Peppin of Rogers, who is set to become House majority leader next month, told a group of GOP activists Saturday that she thinks the league needs legislative oversight.
Peppin said she's concerned about the decision, as well as the autonomy of the non-elected body. She said she does not yet have a specific proposal.
Opponents are concerned about transgender students in locker rooms. Supporters call the measure an important step toward making transgender students more comfortable and accepted in school.
