Questions related to Utah's liability surrounding the passage of a bill banning biological males from competing on female sports teams might've been too much for the state's Governor Spencer Cox, but not his state's legislature.

On Friday, the Utah legislature voted to override the governor's veto on the bill.

The motion to override the veto passed the Utah Senate with 21 yeas and 8 nays after being approved by Utah's House of Representatives in a vote of 56 for and 18 against, the supermajority needed to override Cox's veto.

BREAKING: Utah Senate passes motion to override Gov. Cox’s veto of HB 11 with the required amount. Motion already cleared the House. Special session to follow to address liability issues with the bill.
