LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Gov. Pete Ricketts is urging Nebraskans to comment on the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed revisions to Title IX.

He said they would be a radical redefinition of the law.

Earlier this week, Ricketts released a statement on what he perceives as threats to women’s sports, including the ousting of biologically female athletes from their sports, pointing to transgender swimmer Lia Thomas’ success.

The governor also criticized the “food security blackmail” from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Schools that don’t comply with the Title IX revisions risk losing federal food aid.

Comments will be open until Monday.
