President Joe Biden has issued yet another veto threat against the GOP-controlled House, this time over his controversial Title IX rewrite. The House could vote as soon as Tuesday on H.J. Res. 165, a congressional disapproval of a new Department of Education rule prohibiting discrimination of sex in education programs or activities that receive federal assistance. Crucially, the Biden administration’s new rule bars schools from discriminating against transgender students by changing the definition of the word “sex” in Title IX to include gender identity. Republicans have railed against the rewrite since it was finalized in April, and judges have blocked its implementation in 14 states.
