California Bans Travel to Oklahoma over ‘Discriminatory’ Gay Adoption Law, OU-UCLA Football Likely Exempted
Ed. Political correctness in Looney Toon California will NOT interfere with the big bucks collected in major college football games! And of course, anti-gun, Hollywood hypocrites do more shooting in a two hour movie than Chicago residents experience in a year!
But let's not suggest that liberals are hypocrites!

The state of California has banned travel to Oklahoma
over its supposed “discriminatory” gay adoption law, but OU-UCLA football will likely
be exempted, a report says.
The ban was leveled
as part of California’s 2017 law that prohibits the state’s public university
systems from sending students or staff to states deemed politically incorrect
for one reason or another. Despite the ban, though, California’s athletic teams
have in some cases been permitted to travel to the “banned” states despite the
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra
As June began,
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that Oklahoma had been added as the ninth state
on the banned travel list after the Sooners passed what California deemed
“discriminatory legislation” that would allow private adoption services to
refuse to place children with gay couples based on religious grounds.
to Becerra’s office, “Oklahoma will be added to the list of restricted states
for state-funded travel based on the discriminatory law that would allow
private adoption agencies to refuse services to LGBTQ parents and foster
children based on religious/moral grounds.”
Oklahoma joins eight
other states on the banned travel list. The other states include Alabama,
Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and
Still, despite the
ban, UCLA’s football team is still scheduled to travel to Oklahoma for a Sept.
8 game and the schedule is not likely going to be changed. The excuse for keeping the game is that the home-and-home
series was scheduled back in 2013, several years before California’s travel ban
was instituted, according to NewsOK.
So far the state’s
travel ban has not had full impact on college sports even though the law
ostensibly does cover travel from all colleges that take state funding. But as
previously scheduled games fall off the list, the ban will have more impact.
Already many California colleges are seeking private funding to cover the costs
of conferences and games in the banned states, but that stopgap likely still
violates the spirit of the law.
As the possibility
looms that the ban will have more serious effects, some lawmakers think that
the ban should be re-tooled to exempt college sports. Indeed, Assemblyman
Matthew Harper, R-Huntington Beach, recently introduced Assembly Bill 2389 that would do just that by
exempting state-supported college athletics from the travel ban.
There have been other
consequences from the ban, as well. For instance, the travel law has many
college athletic programs worried over recruiting concerns. Colleges are starting to
find that some top prospects are expressing less interest in attending school
in a state that won’t let students compete on a national scale.
