- Republican lawmakers in Kentucky have enacted a sweeping ban on sex changes for minors by overriding the veto of the Democratic governor.
- The new law prohibits doctors from providing hormone therapy or other gender-affirming treatments to anyone under the age of 18.
- The legislation was passed by the Republican-controlled legislature last month. Governor Andy Beshear had vetoed the bill, calling it an attack on the transgender community. However, on Monday, the GOP lawmakers voted to override the veto, making Kentucky the first state to enact such a law.
