Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) spoke outside of the Capitol after the party line vote.

“This is a great day for America, and a great day for girls and women, and for fairness in sports,” McCarthy said. “House Republicans pledged before the last election or commitment to American women and girls in sports. Today we kept that,” he added.
