The governor has signed into law a bill by a state senator from Santa Barbara which tries to insure girls are getting equal opportunities in public school sports.

SB 1349 by Democratic Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson of Santa Barbara will require schools to put statistics on the number of boys, and girls who participate in competitive sports on their websites.

Jackson says shining light on participation levels by students may serve as a wake-up call for any inequality which may be occurring.
