Of course there’s no chance this bill will become law, because the Democrat-controlled House will never pass it. Speaker Nancy Pelosi is unlikely to even allow it to come up for a vote.

But you’re very right that great danger exists now at the state level, with more and more legislatures passing anti-trans laws.

Additionally, at the federal executive level, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is flexing her own muscles, threatening to deny Federal funding to schools that allow trans athletes to compete.

Attacks are coming at all levels, and vigilance is key right now.

Thanks for covering an important story!
