- The Kentucky legislature on Wednesday overrode a veto from Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear, forcing through a bill restricting access to gender-related treatments and limiting use of bathrooms in schools.
- The bill comes in the immediate aftermath of a mass shooting in Nashville, Tenn., in which a transgender individual killed three students and three faculty members at a Christian school.
- The Senate voted 29-8 in favor of overriding the veto while the House did so by a 76-23 margin, the Associated Press reported.
- The bill bars minors from receiving certain gender-related treatments and requires students to use bathrooms in line with their biological sex rather than gender identities. It also restricts discussion of sexual topics in schools for students of all ages.
