Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) slammed Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) for his “attempt to discriminate against transgender students” and pleaded for “a little bit of heart and compassion” after Tuberville introduced an anti-transgender amendment to the $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill pending before the Senate Saturday.
Tuberville, a former high school football and basketball coach, proposed an amendment that would deny relief funding to schools that allowed transgender students to participate in sports in a way that align with their gender identity.
“This amendment will ensure that education funding in the bill is properly directed to schools who are focused on Covid response and recovery rather than pushing a liberal agenda,” Tuberville said.
Murray, responding to Tuberville’s proposed amendment, said it was “simply an attempt to discriminate against transgender students” and “a harmful attempt to undermine our work to help students and families.”
“All students, including transgender students, benefit from participating in sports, to challenge themselves, to improve fitness, to be part of a team,” Murray said.
