The session is quickly winding down. We expect the legislature will have things wrapped up in two weeks.
Unfortunately, the full Senate passed the K-12 Trans Athlete Enforcement bill and the Higher Education Trans Athlete Ban.
Good news, the Common Law Marriage Bill was sent to Summer Study which stops it this year.
We are closely watching and working the Anti-Pronouns bill this week as it is up in two committees.
We also previously had two bills we were working to stop sent to the General-Sub Committee. While they are not dead, this is a very positive move that makes it highly unlikely that these bills could pass. The “Youth Protection Act” and now the “Don't Say Gay V.2” are there.
