Transgender treatment ban fails in Alabama Legislature

News

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama lawmakers ended the legislative session without a vote on one of the most controversial bills before them: a measure to outlaw gender-affirming medical treatments for transgender minors.

The Senate-passed bill died on Monday, the final night of the legislative session after it was placed at the end of a debate agenda. Lawmakers did not have time to finish that agenda before the session adjourned at midnight.  

The demise of the bill was victory for advocacy groups and transgender youth and their parents who held  a rallies to oppose the bill.
