Could California public schools be banned from traveling to Texas for sporting events

This won't effect private institutions (USC, Stanford), or events that were scheduled before January 1, 2017. But future events - say UCLA at Texas in football or California at Rice in baseball (just two examples off the top of my head) might not be able to be scheduled in the future.

California's attorney general has now put Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota on the travel ban list (joining Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee).

And while this is fodder for the political boards, it could definitely affect sporting events.

Let's see if their coaches are banned from recruiting Texas.

It appears that if they're using state money to make a recruiting trip, they shouldn't be allowed to go. I guess schools could work around that through specific donations earmarked for recruiting budgets?

I'd be more curious to see how teams will be able to compete in various NCAA championship events the next few years (like men's and women's soccer the next couple of years).

They'll just dip the money out of a different section of the bucket and call it "private' money.

Actually the travel to and from NCAA events are likely reimbursed by the NCAA so that's a non-issue unless California's AG rules that they can't go to them at all for some legal reason or another.

Another Title IX type unfunded mandate? Will this apply to transport on American, Amtrak, Greyhound, Southwest, United, or others[/align] providing transport going through Texas (stopping and spending money in the state on a layover or fuel stop?)

Equal opportunity to excel, not equal outcomes based on someone placing you in a category or group.

Not sure how Title IX (a Federal Statute) affects the decision by the California Attorney General. This is a California issue not a reaction to Title IX.

Cali has (in addition to their state ban on traveling to Tejas) had their public schools enter into "voluntary" agreements to implement quotas on gender in sports based "athletic" scholarships (something not in the Federal law, just a fiction made up by bureaucrats at the Department of "Education" (see Feds' Dear Colleague letters), essentially killing successful non-rev programs such as UCLA Men's Swimming and Diving, Fresno State Wrestling just to name two. Legislation + Regulation of the "progressive" agenda, taking away individual and schools choices!
