HARRISBURG – Reps. Barb Gleim (R-Cumberland), Martina White (R-Philadelphia), Valerie Gaydos (R-Allegheny), Stephanie Borowicz (R-Clinton/Centre) and Dawn Keefer (R-York) issued the following statement following Gov. Tom Wolf’s veto of House Bill 972, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act:

“The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act passed by majorities in both the House and Senate with members casting votes representing their districts. Unfortunately, and predictably, Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed the bill, making it clear what we knew all along – he does not support women and their opportunity to compete on a level playing field. He does not support Title IX and the important advances women have made in scholastic athletics in the last 50 years.”
