Republican quashes anti-transgender bill

Republican quashes anti-transgender bill:

“After outcry from transgender advocates, an Indiana Republican lawmaker quashed a proposal to prevent people from being able to change the gender on their birth certificates.

Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer, R-Beech Grove, chair of the House Public Health Committee, said in a statement Friday that she will not give the bill a hearing. She said she was focused instead on addressing the state’s opioid and heroin epidemic.”
