Senator Chris Caughman co-authored The Fairness Act which required that public schools, universities, and community colleges designate sports teams as either male, female, or coed, as based on biological sex.

The law was sponsored by state Sen. Angela Hill (R-Picayune) and it had 21 cosponsors in the Senate.

The issue is becoming increasingly topical around the nation as female athletes have had to compete in athletic events with biological males in certain states. Such competition puts scholarship opportunities, awards, and recognition for female athletes up in the air.

According to Governor Tate Reeves, “One of his first acts was to sign an EO encouraging transgenderism amongst children. So today, I proudly signed the Mississippi Fairness Act. We will protect our young girls and ensure them a fair shot in public school sports—they should not be forced to compete against biological males.”
