The Louisiana Senate just voted to override Governor Edwards' veto of overreaching youth sports legislation--with the minimum number of votes. It's going to the House of Representatives now, and it's going to be as close a vote as possible. You can help make sure it doesn't pass. Write your legislators now to help stop that from happening.

Not only is this bill severe government overreach, but it also poses a huge threat to the Louisiana economy. Already, the NCAA is warning that they will pull championship events from states that pass this kind of legislation. That would mean a $170 million hit from the loss of the 2022 Men's Final Four in New Orleans alone.
When North Carolina passed similar legislation, it cost them almost $4 billion . Don't let that happen here.
Youth sports organizations are handling the non-issue of trans youth participation just fine on their own--but some legislators are insisting on inserting themselves in private organizations' business anyway.
Rules are already in place to ensure fairness in school sports for everyone of all genders. This legislation is unnecessary and has the potential to devastate the Louisiana economy.
We're running out of time. Email your legislators right now to stop this bill.
