Ohio House Overrides Governor’s Transgender Veto

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Ohio House voted Wednesday to override Governor Mike DeWine’s veto of House Bill 68.

The vote was 65 to 28.

If the Senate later concurs, the bill restricting medical care for transgender minors will become law.

The governor had also issued an executive order a week ago banning gender transition surgery for minors.

HB68 also forbids transgender women from playing on all-female sports teams.
