Louisiana will not ban transgender athletes from participating in sports.

The Louisiana House failed to overturn Governor John Bel Edwards' veto of the ban Wednesday by two votes.

Republicans who supported the ban argued it would protect women's sports, while Democrats called it a manufactured issue meant to divide the country.

Edwards had called the measure discriminatory.
