MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The transgender athlete pay bill is now officially state law.

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a bill on Friday that restricts transgender students from playing on the team of the gender they identify with.

The new law will cause a school to lose state funding if they allow transgender students to play on a team that does not align with their gender assigned at birth.
