UPDATE: Gov. Gianforte SIGNS Sports Fairness Into Law! -- Thank him today!
UPDATE:


Have you heard?

In the time since our last contact, Republican Governor Greg Gianforte has signed HB 112, which guarantees sports fairness here in Montana by banning biological males from participating in women's/girls' sports, into law!

This is fantastic news, and further evidence that the grassroots efforts of Montanans like you are having a meaningful, positive effect in our state and, in this case, for the advancement of women and girls in sports!

And now, with the hard work behind us, you can take this chance to extend a message of gratitude to Gov. Gianforte for doing his part by signing this most important legislation into law, and for helping level the playing field for female athletes.

You can reach Gov. Gianforte in one easy step using this simple contact form that LifeSiteNews.com is making available here, on the Voter Voice platform.

With one click, your message is sent directly to the Governor without having to look up any of his contact details.

As a reminder, HB 112 -- now the law of the land -- requires any interscholastic or intramural sports team or athletic association that is sponsored by a state-funded institution be expressly designated for either (1) males, men, or boys; (2) female, women, or girls; or (3) coed or mixed. 

This means that women's and girls' sports/athletic teams at Montana public schools, colleges, and/or universities will now be specifically reserved for biological females ONLY, without exception.

The bill passed the Montana Senate in a 27-23 vote, while earning the support of 60 of 100 members of the State House of Representatives.

Thankfully, Gov. Gianforte agreed with the Legislature's decision, and signed HB 112 into law when it came to his desk on May 7th.

He deserves our thanks and recognition for granting new protections to our state's female athletes by getting this all-important legislation across the finish line.

Please take a few minutes to contact Gov. Gianforte and thank him for signing HB 112, which ensures fairness in sports for Montana's female athletes, into law.

Thank you!

Take a few minutes to review our previous message to Montanans regarding HB 112:


UPDATE:

In the time since our last contact, Republicans in the Montana State Legislature have responded to our calls for action and have introduced House Bill (HB) 112.

The legislation, which has been approved by both the Montana House and Senate, would take direct aim at Joe Biden’s executive order permitting biological males to compete in women’s sports.

Instead, the bill requires single-sex sports teams at Montana schools and colleges to admit only members of the same biological sex that the team is reserved for, i.e. only biological females could be legally admitted to an all-women's/girls' sports team.

HB 112 will now move on to Republican Governor Greg Gianforte's desk for final consideration and approval.

That's why we need YOU to contact Gov. Gianforte and encourage him to sign this important legislation into law.

Montana will join a growing list of states adopting similar legislation in response to Joe Biden's executive order allowing biological males to participate in females' sports and athletics, but it's up to us to let our Governor know that the people of our state support this important legislation, too.

Please take urgent action and contact Gov. Gianforte in one easy step using the simple contact form that LifeSite is making available here.

It’s called Voter Voice and it will automatically match you to your representative’s email and Twitter accounts.

It only takes one click of a button, and you won't even have to look-up the Governor's contact details.

Introduced by Republican State Representative John Fuller, HB 112 stipulates that any interscholastic or intramural sports team or athletic association that is sponsored by Montana public schools, colleges, and/or universities (or competes against any of the latter) be expressly designated for either (1) males, men, or boys; (2) female, women, or girls; or (3) coed or mixed. 

It also expressly states that "athletic teams or sports designated for females, women, or girls may not be open to students of the male sex."

This legislation’s reasoning is rooted in scientific reality, and it goes without saying that the right of young women to compete on an even playing field must be protected against such outright attacks from our federal government.

Their voices – and ours – must be heard, but we need Governor Gianforte's support to ensure this happens.

He has yet to confirm whether he plans to sign this bill, so time is of the essence: We MUST let him know that Montanans support HB 112, too!

Please contact Governor Gianforte as soon as possible, and request that he sign HB 112 into law as soon as possible.

Individual states are our last line of defense against the left’s attack on female athletes and biology in general. Let’s help Montana put Joe Biden on notice that his radical agenda will not be tolerated!
