The Minnesota House passed the Trans Refuge Bill on March 19, a step toward making the state a safe haven for transgender youth – including those traveling from other states – seeking gender-affirming health care. The bill prevents state courts or officials from complying with child removal requests, extraditions, arrests or subpoenas related to gender-affirming health care received in Minnesota. Gov. Tim Walz earlier this month issued an executive order directing state agencies and officials not to comply with other states’ efforts to interfere with or penalize out-of-state patients who travel to Minnesota to pursue gender-affirming care. Passage of the Trans Refuge Bill would guarantee that protection in state law.
Message: Please support SF63, the Trans Refuge Bill. The Trans Refuge Bill will protect trans youth and their families from criminal prosecution for seeking access to gender-affirming health care in Minnesota.
