Louisiana House Throws Female Athletes Under the Bus

By | Louisiana | No Comments

The Louisiana House of Representatives failed to override Gov. John Bel Edwards (Democrat) veto of SB 156, Fairness in Womens’ Sports Act. The Louisiana Senate voted to override the veto the previous day.

Concerned Women for America of Louisiana State Director, Laura Huber, had this to say of the failed veto override, “It is devastating that a minority of lawmakers have prevailed today to throw our daughters under the bus and deny them equal rights to safety and opportunity in sports that women fought so hard to achieve. We thank the legislators of both parties who have stood with courage and conviction to fight for fair play for Louisiana’s female athletes. We will continue to stand with you!”

Gov. Bel Edwards: Sign the Bill!

By | Louisiana | No Comments

We have reason to celebrate in Louisiana! Last Thursday, May 27, SB 156, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 77/17. The bill passed both chambers with bipartisan support (13 Democrats voted for the bill). I previously wrote to you about the bill here and here.

Thank you for sending messages to the House and Senate members about this important bill that protects girls’ sports! Your voice made the difference.

But the work is not over. I need you to make one more call to Gov. John Bel Edwards (Democrat)! It is very important that he hears from those who stand with him on protecting girls’ sports.

Take Action!

  1. Contact Gov. Bel Edwards and ask him to stand with female athletes and sign SB 156. Let him know that you stand with him in support of the bill. Phone: (225)342-7015 | Email. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Louisiana, be sure to let him know.
  2. Forward this information to family and friend

Please pray for Gov. Bel Edwards that he will sign the bill. Pray that God would give him the wisdom and understanding to accomplish His purposes.

 “Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.” 1 Timothy 2:2
