The SAFER Act Signed into Law

JACKSON, Miss.–The SAFER Act has been signed into law by Gov. Tate Reeves. That bill was passed in the last few days of the legislative session and was opposed by Democratic lawmakers from the Delta, including Re. Willie Bailey and Sen. Derrick Simmons, both from Washington County.
The new law is designed to protect women and girls from having to use facilities along with people who might identify as female, but who are biological males.
It also defines the sexes and puts that into code.
“It’s mind blowing that this is what Joe Biden’s America has come to. Having to pass common sense policies that protect women’s spaces was unimaginable just a few years ago. But here we are… we have to pass a law to protect women in bathrooms, sororities, locker rooms, dressing rooms, shower rooms, and more,” said Reeves in a Facebook post.
“There’s no doubt that the left will continue to come up with more kooky ideas that harm biological women. And there’s no doubt that Mississippi will continue to push back on them. That’s because we have to — protecting girls and women from the left’s dangerous agenda is just too important to ignore,” he said.
Bailey called the measure “silly” on the House floor and likened it to racial prejudice.
