House Republicans Introduce Legislation To Reverse Biden’s Title IX Changes

A group of House Republicans are trying to reverse the Biden administration’s changes to Title IX that forces public schools to allow biological males compete in female sports and use girls’ bathrooms.

On Wednesday, the group, led by Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL), introduced a bill that would cancel the changes.

In a statement, Miller criticized the Biden administration’s regulations as a “blatant violation” of Title IX’s protections for women.

“Joe Biden is undermining years of progress women have made in securing their rights under Title IX. For more than half a century, Title IX has protected women and girls, ensuring they have equal opportunities in education,” she said, adding, “However, the Biden Administration is putting our girls at risk by allowing men to access women’s and girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms. This divergence is a blatant violation of the protections Title IX was meant to guarantee, and it undermines the very foundation of women’s rights and security in their private spaces.”

The effort is joined by 67 other House Republicans, some of whom have spoken out in support of the bill.

In her own statement, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) said, “I’m proud to support Representative Mary Miller’s legislation to block the Biden Administration’s radical efforts to roll back women’s rights and undo President Trump’s policies that ensure every American receives due process under the law.”

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) also voiced her support for the legislation, maintaining that “Joe Biden’s DOE does not get to decide what being a girl or woman means.”

“As society drifts into the chaos of postmodernism, it is crucial that we, as legislators, stay firm and protect the rights of young women across America. They deserve to feel safe in their schools and confident in their sports. We must stand up for our values and ensure that every young woman has the opportunity to thrive in a safe environment,” she added.

Since the Education Department unveiled the new Title IX regulations in April, up to nine states have filed lawsuits against the administration, including Texas, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Alabama.
