The Franklin County Court of Common Pleas issued a temporary restraining order on Tuesday to prevent House Bill 68 from taking immediate effect.

House Bill 68, which includes the SAFE Act and the Save Women’s Sports Act, was set to take effect next week on April 24.

The SAFE Act prevents doctors from providing minors with gender-affirming care, while the Save Women’s Sports Act prevents biological males who identify as transgender from participating in girls’ and women’s sports.
