Kansas House Speaker Dan Hawkins (R-Wichita) issued the following statement in response to Governor Laura Kelly’s veto of HB2238:

“It’s clear that candidate Kelly is gone and Governor Kelly has returned. Now that she no longer has to face the voters, the Governor has done another about face. The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act was passed in the Kansas House and Senate with broad support to protect the rights of female athletes in the state by requiring that female student athletic teams only include members who are biologically female.

This is common sense.

Republicans in the House will make every effort to override this veto.”
