HARRISBURG – In order to maintain a level playing field for women’s sports, Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset/Bedford) voted in favor of House Bill 972
, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration.
“Gender is a biological question, and we need to follow the science. When it comes down to physical traits such as strength and speed, the science tells us that males possess a significant advantage over females.
“Recently in collegiate sports, biological males have decided to compete in female sporting events. This is neither safe, nor acceptable.
“I am grateful to see my colleagues join me in letting science be at the forefront of our decision making.”
