APP Slams Wisconsin Gov. Evers for Vetoing Protections for Girl Athletes

April 2, 2024

Earlier today, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers vetoed AB 377, legislation which would have prohibited biological males from competing in girls’ athletics at the K-12 level.

In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement slamming Evers’ action:

“Over the last week, the twisted priorities of far-left Democrats have become crystal clear. Radicals like Joe Biden will use Easter Sunday to celebrate a ‘Transgender Day of Visibility,’ and yet they continue to treat girl athletes as invisible. Despite increasing instances of girls losing titles to males—and even being injured in competition by those males—the far left still falsely claims that it isn’t happening. Governor Evers’ veto of protections for those girl athletes is an especially cowardly surrender to the extremist ideologues who continue to deny biological reality.

“Fortunately, the American people have not been fooled by this charade. They recognize that girls’ sports are under threat, which is why polls consistently show the vast majority of voters support legislation that protects female athletes. Soon, far-left Democrats will have to face the political consequences of their radicalism, and APP intends to make sure Wisconsin families are fully informed on these issues heading into this fall’s election.”
