FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) — Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron joining 18 other states in filing a brief to stop a Biden administration policy that allows transgender boys to compete on girls sports teams.
Filed in the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals — the brief argues the Biden administration is using a flawed interpretation of Title IX to include transgender athletes.
“Women athletes in Kentucky deserve to compete on a level playing field,” said Cameron. He continues to defend the Kentucky law passed last year that prevents transgender athletes from playing on women’s teams. Gov. Andy Beshear attempted to end the ban through veto but failed.

“For the second time in less than a decade, the Department of Education has attempted to effect radical change in our nation’s schools by purporting to “interpret” Title IX to prohibit sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination,” reads the introduction of the brief.
