Des Moines, Iowa, has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a law on Thursday that would prevent transgender women and girls from playing on sports teams that match their gender identification at all levels of education, including high school, college, and university.

Activists for transgender rights in Iowa, LGBTQ advocacy organizations, corporations, and Democrats have slammed the state’s approval of House File 2416, claiming that it discriminates against transgender females and violates civil rights legislation. Legal experts anticipate that the bill will be challenged in court.

Reynolds, a Republican, said that the bill is “an issue of justice” since transgender females have “athletic advantages” over their male counterparts. After she signs the bill, Iowa would join a group of ten other Republican-led states that have enacted legislation banning transgender athletes in recent years.
As of right now, the legislation is in force.
