Twitchy reported back on April 12 that the NCAA had confirmed it would pull events from states with bills “banning” trans students from participating in school sports — or at least that’s the way the ACLU reported it. Trans students would still be able to participate in school sports, but on teams according to their biological sex.
With 32 states currently considering the law and every female athlete serious about their career moving to one of those states for college or varsity I think you'll find people voting with their feet and the @ACLU irrelevant which would be a shame.

Florida is among those states that would face a boycott from the NCAA, which in turn has prompted Florida’s legislature to pass a bill that would prevent tax dollars from going to businesses or organizations that boycott the state.
The Florida Senate and House just passed a bill stripping the NCAA and other organizations of taxpayer money and incentives.
The bill is on the desk of Governor @GovRonDeSantis awaiting his signature.
President Trump taught Republicans how to have a backbone!

Seems to me it's more like DeSantis is actually showing how to win. Trump just showed us how broken everything really is

Should tax dollars ever go to the @NCAA under any circumstance?

Why were they getting tax dollars to begin with is the real problem

The NCAA is now a tool of the Marxist left. They shouldn't be getting ANY funding.
