Following last week’s last-minute passage of SB 55 – originally introduced as SB 208 – the anti-trans youth bill reached Governor Kelly’s desk Friday morning. She now has ten days in which to sign or veto the bill, or allow it to become law without her signature.
This is your chance to make sure your voice is heard.
