What the Tennessee legislature did this week
Two of the biggest bills pending in the legislature moved closer to becoming law this week.
🩺 The House signed off on a bill to ban gender-affirming care for minors. It now goes to Gov. Bill Lee's desk.
- Major medical associations support gender-affirming care for minors, such as puberty blockers or hormones.
🏳️🌈 A bill regulating some drag shows easily passed in the House. It is slightly different from the Senate's version, which passed earlier this month.
- The Senate will now get an opportunity to vote on accepting the House version, per the Tennessean.
✂ An effort to cut the Metro Council's size cleared a Senate committee.
- The bill is still working its way through committees in both chambers and is scheduled to be considered by another House panel next week.
