Senate ‘Trans Refuge’ Bill Receives First Hearing

ST. PAUL, Minn. — On Friday, the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee heard SF 63, a bill that would offer protections to individuals and families who come to Minnesota seeking gender-affirming healthcare, and it protects medical professionals who provide that care. Chief author Senator Erin Maye Quade (DFL-Apple Valley) spoke alongside advocates, young people, and legal and medical professions who support the bill, as well as Rep. Leigh Finke (DFL-St. Paul), the chief author of the House version of the bill.
