Transgender Bill Vetoed: Attorney General Jeff Landry Calls for Veto Session to Protect Women

BATON ROUGE, LA - Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement encouraging the Louisiana Legislature to hold a veto session:

"The passage of the Fairness in Women's Sports Act (SB156) was a common-sense approach by the Legislature to protect women. The Governor's disrespect for women by vetoing this bipartisan bill was both disappointing and irresponsible. With growing support from citizens and legislators all across the state, the Louisiana Legislature has the opportunity to right this wrong. I join my fellow citizens in supporting the Legislature's duty to protect women and hold a veto session."
