Vote NO on amended SB2233
Please, vote NO on SB2233 on March 9 in the Health and Welfare Committee.
My understanding is that the bill is to be amended to codify existing medical protocols related to health care for transgender youth. Considering how detrimental SB2215 is, which deals very differently with the same issues, it may be that the amended SB2233 is well intentioned.
Nevertheless, an amended SB2233 was not sought by the transgender community, parents of transgender youth, or health care providers and their associations. Additionally it is important to note that protocols change as research and experience provide new information. It is a burden and a risk to go through a legislative or regulatory change every time the standards evolve. That could stall the implementation of best practices in health care for Tennessee residents.
Thank you for considering my views.
