CONCORD, N.H. — A bill that would restrict participation in girls high school sports to only those born as girls was up before the New Hampshire House Education Committee on Tuesday.
Proposed house bill #1251 states, "This bill prohibits public schools from permitting a male student to participate in a student sport designated for females."
Supporters of the bill say its purpose is to keep a "level playing field" in high school sports.
Opponents say this is a big step of backward progress for the LGBTQ community, in particular, for transgender people.
