House Republicans will make protecting women’s sports a “priority” should they take back the lower chamber after the 2022 midterms, Fox News Digital has discovered.

The Republican Study Committee (RSC) is pushing to bring the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, led by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., to the House floor through a discharge petition.

A senior GOP aide explained to Fox News Digital that “protecting women’s sports will be a priority of a Republican majority.”

A leadership aide explained to Fox News Digital that Republican members view the issue as important.

Republican members are gearing up to tackle the issue should the House flip in November, with RSC Chairman Jim Banks of Indiana telling Fox News Digital, “Americans overwhelmingly support allowing girls to compete on an even playing field.”

“Protecting women’s sports is a winning issue for House Republicans and we are more united than ever around it,” Banks announced. “For the sake of millions of female athletes, this bill absolutely should be a part of our post-2022 agenda.”

Banks gave props to Steube for his leadership on the measure, thanking him, “Leader McCarthy and the over one hundred House Republicans who signed the Republican Study Committee’s discharge petition.”

Steube explained to Fox News Digital that he had initially filed an amendment in the House Judiciary Committee for the Equality Act – which he stated “completely redefined what a woman is and didn’t keep the protections for Title IX” – that failed on a party-line vote.

The Florida Republican stated after the amendment’s failure, he filed a standalone bill as well as made a motion to recommit on the House floor.

“And there’s become so much attention to this issue because there are circumstances and example after example all over the country where this is happening,” Steube stated. “Every day, women are losing scholarships.”

Steube pointed to the case of University of Virginia swimmer Emma Weyant, the collegiate swimmer who came in second place behind transgender Penn swimmer Lia Thomas, stressing that Weyant is from his district in Florida. The Florida Republican announced the measure would need the backing of “at least five” Democrats to pass the House before heading into the 50-50 split Senate.

“And that’s the whole point: let’s put everybody on record as to where they stand on this issue,” Steube stated. “Do you think the biological men should be able to compete against biological women in competitive athletic sports? And put everybody on the board of it on it.”

Steube announced he thinks that the matter of transgender biological men competing in women’s sports “is going to be a piece to show how far the left has gone with their very far-Left progressive policies that the majority of Americans don’t support.”
