Ranking Member Scott Applauds Biden Administration for Prioritizing Safety and Fairness in School Sports

WASHINGTON – Ranking Member Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (VA-03) released the following statement after the Department of Education released a proposed rule to update Title IX regulations regarding participation in school athletics programs. Specifically, the proposed rule would prohibit schools and athletics programs from adopting or applying one-size-fits-all policies that categorically ban transgender students from participating in school sports activities consistent with their gender identity.

“School sports offer invaluable life lessons—from leadership to teamwork—that every child in America should be able to access and enjoy.  To that end, the proposed rule ensures that school sports are, above all, fair and safe for our nation’s children.”
