The House of Representatives voted Monday to keep a bill that would limit transgender women’s rights alive by sending it to a committee to rectify differences between the House and Senate versions. James Bradley from the University of Montana Legislative News Service reports that House Bill 112 would bar transgender women from competing on women’s sports teams. It narrowly passed the Senate on a 29 to 21 vote with an amendment that would nullify the act if the federal government condemns it. Whitefish Republican Representative John Fuller the bill’s sponsor asked the House to not pass the Senate’s amended version. He said rather than immediately nullifying the act if the federal government strikes it down the state should wait for a lengthy appeals process.
