The Alaska Department of Law has found no legal issues with a new state regulation that prohibits gender-confused males from competing in girls’ high school sports, and Lt. Gov. Nancy Dahlstrom has signed off on the new policy.
The Department of Law review, which was issued on Oct. 12, found “no legal problems” with the new regulation, which requires the ASAA – as the governing body for state high school sports – to abide by the State Board of Education’s decision.
“The regulations require nonprofit associations that administer and promote interscholastic activities in Alaska to ensure fairness, safety, and equal opportunity for female students in high school athletics by limiting participation in separate high school athletic teams for female students in competitive or contact sports to females who were assigned female at birth,” the Department of Law review states.
Dahlstrom’s office signed off on the regulation on Oct. 12.
