Arkansas governor says state won't comply with new federal rules on treatment of trans students

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared Thursday that the state won't comply with a federal regulation that seeks to protect the rights of transgender students in the nation's schools, joining other Republican-led states that are defying the new rules.

Sanders signed an executive order stating that Arkansas schools will continue to enforce restrictions on which bathrooms and pronouns transgender students can use, laws that could be invalidated by the new regulations on how to enforce Title IX.

''My message to Joe Biden and the federal government is we will not comply,'' Sanders said at a news conference at the state Capitol.
